Difficulty migrating my mysqlite backend to mariadb backend

Hi - I’m open to any easy way attempting to migrate a bitwarden_rs self-hosted docker server with mysqlite backend to a bitwarden_rs self hosted docker server with maria_db backend.

For reference I was trying to follow these instructions here:

So I went ahead and created a compose file with mariadb and bitwardenrs/server-mysql:latest

I followed the guide and dumped the old db.sqlite3 database using the command:
sqlite3 db.sqlite3 .dump | grep "^INSERT INTO" | grep -v "__diesel_schema_migrations" > sqlitedump.sql ; echo -ne "SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=0;\n$(cat sqlitedump.sql)" > mysqldump.sql

I copied the mysqldump.sql file to the bin mount location associated with my mariadb location (/var/data/bw-mysql-data).

I then docker exec -it mariadb /bin/bash into the mariadb container and tried to import the data but unfortunately received a ton of errors that are not mentioned in the reference guide. I’m not exactly sure what to do since I haven’t seen these errors reported in the past.

root@mariadb-bitwarden_rs:/config# mysql --force --password --user=bwuser --database=bitwarden < mysqldump.sql

You seem to have skipped a step.
Before the import you need to connect bitwarenrs to that mysql database so that bitwardenrs can create the tables.

After that you can import that generated dump file.
Be sure to stop bitwardenrs first right after the tables are created to prevent issues

Hey Thanks @BlackDex.

I don’t think I skipped that step although I can definitely try again. I constructed by compose file with mariadb and bitwardenrs-mysql and started the containers via docker-compose. I then just stopped bitwardenrs-mysql and proceeded at that point. I didn’t manually try to create any databases or tables. I’m betting I didn’t do something correctly. I can try the process again and post the visual table structures if you like…I’m not sure how to troubleshoot this one.

Here is a picture of the mariadb (as viewed my phpmyadmin). Not sure if database structure is right. I can definitely try to recreate if there is a problem.

I think there is a version mismatch between the sqlite and mysql versions.

I suggest to first upgrade the sqlite docker image, then export, clear the mysql db and start again.

@BlackDex – I’m always willing to try again.

For my docker images I’m already using:

image: bitwardenrs/server-mysql:latest
image: bitwardenrs/server:latest

Just curious if I should be using different images or testing? Looking at the dockerfile it looks like there are libmariadb and libpg libraries brought into the image. Perhaps I should try the same image on both?

You can just use server:latest for all database.
Version 1.17.0 has support for all databases built-in.
So you should only need to change the DATABASE_URL to point to the correct database.

So I deleted the database and started just with a mariadb portion in the compose file. After startup of the container I confirmed by bitwarden database had no tables.

I then added in the bitwarden mysql implementation. I examined the bitwarden database after starting of the container and I didn’t see any schema being setup. It bitwarden database was still blank. (which I don’t think is right).

The logs for the bitwarden-mysql implementation shows the following (Note nothing about any mysql/mariadb connection):

Here is my docker-compose file (portion dealing with the bitwardenrs attempted mysql implementation):

  db:
    container_name: mariadb
    image: linuxserver/mariadb:latest
    restart: always
    hostname: mariadb-bitwarden_rs

      - FILE__MYSQL_PASSWORD=/run/secrets/mysql-user_secret
    volumes:
      - /var/data/db:/config

  bitwardenrs-mysql:
    container_name: bitwardenrs-mysql
    image: bitwardenrs/server-mysql:latest
    image: bitwardenrs/server:latest
    restart: always
    hostname: bitwardenrs-mysql-docker

    ports:

      - 3013:3012
    depends_on:
      - db
    environment:

    volumes:

      - /etc/letsencrypt/bwbackend.<domain>.com:/ssl:ro

So my problem is the table structure for bitwarden within the database isn’t initially being created – I’m not even sure how to debug this since in the log files of my two containers – mariadb, and bitwardenrs-mysql there is nothing which would indicated either a failed or unsuccessful connection.

Ok - so I got past the part above – there was a problem in the docker-compose.yml file:

Incorrect syntax:

  • DATABASE_URL=‘mysql://bwuser:bwuserpass@mariadb/bitwarden’

Correct syntax

  • DATABASE_URL=mysql://bwuser:bwuserpass@mariadb/bitwarden

I then stopped the bitwardenrs-mysql container:
docker stop bitwardenrs-mysql

Within the docker host, I changed into the data directory of the old bitwardenrs using sqlite (for me this was /var/data/bwdata.

I ran the following command as root:
sqlite3 db.sqlite3 .dump | grep "^INSERT INTO" | grep -v "__diesel_schema_migrations" > sqlitedump.sql ; echo -ne "SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=0;\n$(cat sqlitedump.sql)" > mysqldump.sql

I copied the mysqldump.sql file from this directory into the bind mounted directory of the mariadb(which for me was /var/data/db).

I created a shell into the mariadb container:
docker exec -it mariadb /bin/bash

Within the mariadb container I changed into the /config directory, I imported the mysqldump.sql file into the database and then exited the container:

cd /config
mysql -u bwuser -pbwuserpass --force --show-warnings --database=bitwarden  < mysqldump.sql
exit

I then restarted the bitwardenrs-mysql container
docker-compose start bitwardenrs-mysql

Shockingly everything actually worked this time. Just had to verify every step as I went about it. Really help to have a phpmyadmin graphical view of the database while doing this to look for potential mis-steps along the way.
