I cannot reproduce this issue.
Can you tell us a bit more about your hosting setup?

Everything in running under Docker and behind an Apache proxy. Here goes ...

Step 1 Dockerfile - creates an appropriate PHP machine

FROM php:apache

RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y \
vim \
libfreetype6-dev \
libjpeg62-turbo-dev \
libmcrypt-dev \
libpng-dev \
libldap2-dev \
libc-client-dev \
libkrb5-dev \
libzip-dev \
telnet \
&& pecl install mcrypt-1.0.2 \
&& docker-php-ext-enable mcrypt \
&& docker-php-ext-install -j$(nproc) iconv pdo_mysql zip \
&& docker-php-ext-configure gd --with-freetype-dir=/usr/include/ --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/include/ \
&& docker-php-ext-install -j$(nproc) gd \
&& docker-php-ext-configure imap --with-kerberos --with-imap-ssl \
&& docker-php-ext-install -j$(nproc) imap \
&& rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*

Step 2 Dockerfile - install Limesurvey

FROM limesurvey-apache

RUN curl -o /tmp/limesurvey.tar.gz --location ''

RUN tar zxf /tmp/limesurvey.tar.gz --directory=/var/www/html/ --strip-components=9 \
&& rm /tmp/limesurvey.tar.gz \
&& chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html/

Step 3 - Apache proxy configuration

<VirtualHost *:80>
Redirect "/" ";
ErrorLog "logs/"
CustomLog "logs/" common

<VirtualHost *:443>

Ensures that server-constructed URLs are controlled by the server

UseCanonicalName On

ErrorLog &quot;logs/;
CustomLog &quot;logs/; common

SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile &quot;/usr/local/apache2/conf/;
SSLCertificateKeyFile &quot;/usr/local/apache2/conf/;
SSLCACertificateFile &quot;/usr/local/apache2/conf/;

ProxyRequests Off
ProxyPass / &quot;http://surveys-engineering/&quot;
ProxyPassReverse / &quot;http://surveys-engineering/&quot;


Step 4 - launch things

docker run \
--detach \
--restart=unless-stopped \
--volume=/opt/machine/etc/apache/apache2-conf:/mnt/apache2/conf \
--volume=/opt/machine/etc/apache/shibboleth/shibboleth2.xml:/etc/shibboleth/shibboleth2.xml \
--volume=/opt/machine/mnt/web-proxy/documentroots:/mnt/apache2/documentroots \
--network=engsci_virtual \
--publish=80:80 \
--publish=443:443 \
--name web-proxy \

docker run \
--detach \
--restart=unless-stopped \
--volume=/opt/machine/mnt/surveys-engineering/upload:/var/www/html/upload \
--volume=/opt/machine/etc/surveys/etc/surveys-engineering-config.php:/var/www/html/application/config/config.php \
--network=engsci_virtual \
--name surveys-engineering \

The strange thing is that all of the other features seem to be working - the only one that I can see having an issue is the mail templates. Is there any place I can look in the MySQL database to see whether something is missing?

Some more investigating - and starting again from scratch with an empty database, etc. - shows the server responding to with an 400 error and the claim of "Your request is invalid. The request could not be understood by the server due to malformed syntax.Please do not repeat the request without modifications"

I'm not immediately sure how to debug this message as I'm pretty sure that it's coming from the underlying framework.

I installed limesurvey3.17.15+190903.tar.gz using the identical process and the email templates came up cleanly.

I will mark this as resolve.
I also tried to install ls through docker and couldn't reproduce it either.

This is really, really strange as I wiped everything, installed again, and this time Published a port so that I could access the Docker instance directly (e.g. removed the proxy server from the chain). And - of course - it doesn’t work.

Can you share the Dockerfile that you used? And (ideally) how I can debug the Yi framework to see what it thinks is happening? I’m assuming that “You request is invalid” errors can be traced somehow.

I used this one

I just changed the top lines to take the current release.
To debug it, you may tap into the container and activate debug mode in the application/config/config.php (set debug to 2)
That way you will get a trace of what is broken.
