Docker-compose error encountered during self-hosting setup

When at the last step of the self-hosting installation (wsl sudo docker-compose up -d)
I receive the error "Line8: unexpected character "/" in variable name".

I do not see a "/" character on line 8 in any of the self-hosting (retool-onpremise-master) yml or env files and am unable to get past this error.

Hey @BTheiss! Would you mind sharing your docker.env file? Generally, this error gets caused by double quotes where there should be single quotes or vice versa!

@BTheiss Double quote your passwords and encryption key in the docker.env. This got me past the issue.


Thank you!!! Adding the double quotes around passwords and encryption keys in docker.env resolved that error.
