[Solved] Installation ID Validation Fails from Behind Proxy


I am trying to install on a server which is behind our corporate proxy. Although I have the proxy information set in my environment variables, I get the error “Unable to validate installation id. Problem contacting Bitwarden server.” during the installation id verification part of the install process.

I’ve looked through bitwarden.sh, but I don’t see an obvious place where I should set the proxy values.

How can I install bitwarden server from behind my company proxy?


This was my own error. Although I had httpProxy set in my docker config, I had forgotten httpsProxy.


I am encountering this same problem. However, my proxy configurations are correct and everything else seems to work.
Is the ID validation using a different protocol than http/s that my squid proxy isn’t handling?
