Self hosting implications

Hello, I’m thinking of self hosting Bitwarden on my Synology server on a docker container. While the procedure to create and self host seems straight forward, I am not entirely clear on the implications if I ever suffer from an unrecoverable data loss on my NAS (and obviously my Bitwarden docker container).

Could I just export the data from one of my clients and then import to the new Bitwarden container once I build one, or even import to if I choose to do so?

Thank you for your time.

Bumping this for anyone who might be able to provide feedback.

Hi @nkatagas, welcome!

You can migrate from self-hosted to the cloud using these steps if needed:

(Note that these steps are for Bitwarden official server instances)
