Collaborative Document Editing?

Yes, in the same subnet. I used Win10 and Debian9.

From the Debian machine, what happens if you run openssl s_client -connect neth_ip:8082?

Used my Proxmox Server for the command:

root@pve02:~# openssl s_client -connect

depth=0 CN = NethServer, O = Example Org, ST = SomeState, OU = Main, emailAddress = root@localhost.localdomain, C = --, L = Hometown
verify error:num=18:self signed certificate
verify return:1
depth=0 CN = NethServer, O = Example Org, ST = SomeState, OU = Main, emailAddress = root@localhost.localdomain, C = --, L = Hometown
verify return:1

I had some download size error today, it worked yesterday. You are right, the repo should be used. Maybe it was because of installing repo and onlyoffice in one line missing repo key install that way…

This worked for me, yesterday:

yum -y install
yum -y install
yum -y install onlyoffice-documentserver

Thanks, I think it was because I tried to install repo and package in one line

Oh my God, I just had to point my client-browser to https://neth_fqdn:8082 and accept the rule…

It works now… Thank you all !



Wow a lot of work so far! Keep up up guys and keep us posted

After this, I’d suggest adding to check that the document server is running and accessible–you should be able to reach it at https://neth_fqdn_or_ip:8082. And really, especially if you’re using trusted certs (like those from Let’s Encrypt), it really should be the FQDN. Any issues here (like certificate errors) will be harder to troubleshoot through Nextcloud, as we’ve just seen.

Edit: When you browse there, you should see this:


Fully agree, added your points.

I solved my repo download problem with

  • yum clean all
  • rm -rf /var/cache/yum

so I change it to download via repo again.

@mrmarkuz, followed your instructions for another test installation, and it’s working (again) without issues.

Another question is whether OnlyOffice supports legacy MS Office file types, or just the OOXML varieties–there’s still a lot of .doc files out there. The OnlyOffice app in Nextcloud, at least, only seems to deal with the OOXML types.

Thanks for testing.

Maybe we can convert the old doc files somehow (libreoffice). Don’t know if Collabora can handle legacy office files.

Should we write a HowTo or do we still need more tests ?

Basic installation seems to work. I think we are ready for an onlyoffice howto!

OK, I suggest we discuss it tomorrow. Sleep well… :sleeping:

I propose to just link this post to a new howto topic.
Good night!

I tried it out now and it works even more splendidly than it was for half of a year ago! The very thing is, why not to add here pdf editing as well until onlyoffice itself doesn’t have this feature. For now, I use this tool alongside and something like this exactly would be nice to see in oo but as a free feature, not a paid one

Though PDF was not meant to be edited (IIRC), interesting idea. Indeed the desktop version of LibreOffice can “edit” PDFs, don’t know if this feature is available for Collabora Online. Nextcloud has some OCR plugin.
