is this the better method of installing than

than this method.

The module is the better method as it eases installation a lot and preconfigures onlyoffice.

Thank you,

and whats the difference between the quick install, and the installation in the documentation.

do I have to run write both, or only chose one

Choose one. First we make a howto and then we make the module out of the howto. So the module integrates the howto.

when I install the module with the instruction, will it install on sub.doamin.tld/onlyoffice or do I need to point a subdomain like https://onlyoffice.domin.tld

The module integrates itself in nextcloud so it depends on nextcloud.

does that mean I do not have to go and add theh onlyoffcie erver in the nextcloud settings?

thank you

Hi everyone,

Yesterday i made a clean install Nethserver + Nextcloud (from Software center) + OnlyOffice + DocumentServer 5.1.4 as per instructions (onlyoffice Wiki).

Despite this, I have always received an error (when I press the Save button in Nextcloud - ONLYOFFICE):
“Command Request on check error: Error while downloading the document file to be converted.”

I spent the whole day trying to solve the problem.

I found a solution this morning. In file default.json (/etc/onlyoffice/documentserver/) I made a simple change (true to false):

“requestDefaults”: {
“headers”: {
“userAgent”: “Node.js/6.13”
“rejectUnauthorized”: false

I know the problem is in the certificates, but only in this way have I managed to make Onlyoffice to work.

I am a little confused :roll_eyes:

Hi Zoran,

Yes, you need a valid trusted cert like letsencrypt and you probably need to port forward 8082 from your router to your Nethserver. You have to set your domain too.

Thanks for sharing, this is great for using onlyoffice without valid cert but I am afraid it’s not the best for security.

Thanks Markus,

now I will try to implement the certificates.

Hi Markus @mrmarkuz ,

I installed a new NS instance with NC-13.0.6 and only-office 5.0.7 (selfsigned certs).
I had to install librabbitmq and librabbitmq-tools from puias-unsupported.

I did:

and then

yum localinstall -y librabbitmq-0.5.2-1.sdl7.x86_64.rpm
yum localinstall -y librabbitmq-tools-0.5.2-1.sdl7.x86_64.rpm

Now onlyoffice in NC 13 on NS 7.5 is running fine:

Maybe you want to update your Howto.


IIRC it’s only a problem with old documentserver needed for self-signed certs, newer documentserver version should just work. It’s because epel changed rabbitmq packages.
Thanx, I’ll update the wiki entry asap.

EDIT: updated.


4 posts were split to a new topic: Content server runs, but no onlyapp options

I found a workaround to install onlyoffice 5.1.x with selfsigned certs.
It’s only a workaround, because it breaks SSL security due to allow connections to unauthorized ssl servers, but it works.

Set services.CoAuthoring.requestDefaults.rejectUnauthorized=false in /etc/onlyoffice/documentserver/defaults.json file and restart documentserver serviceis with supervisorctl restart all .

I updated the module. Please test it so I can put it to the repo!

To update an existing installation (for a full install follow the wiki except of these two lines):

yum -y install
yum -y install

It seems the formats were extended too:



Just saw, that I posted the same solution as you did before. Sorry :blush:
I didn’t read this topic exactly enough.
I could have saved half a day of searching if I had done… :wink:
