Howto install Onlyoffice document server as Nextcloud app

I tried to get started with Onlyoffice following wiki documentation but using DocumentServer 5.2.3.

The server didn’t start. Quick and ugly fix:

chown onlyoffice:onlyoffice /etc/onlyoffice/documentserver/default.json
supervisorctl restart all

Thanks, I can confirm this, it seems they changed something in 5.2 but I can’t find documentation about it.

I am going to investigate, only found this for the moment, default.json is read-only now and config should be saved in another file:


Here is the changelog, but I can’t find something about it too.

hello, help me.
Some time ago I made my first installation of ONLYOFFICE and everything went wonderfully.
A few days ago I’m trying to do some installations but I can not start the APP.
I have created more virtual machines with Neth 7.5 or 7.6, update, but the result is always the same.
I do as follows:
I install Nethserver 7.5 or 7.6
I install LDAP
I do everything that the WIKI says

This is the result:
test the document server.


Then try to open file .docx

Did you allow self-signed certs? It’s necessary with newer documentserver versions:[]=onlyoffice#self-signed_certificate


Hi, Markus
Tomorrow i’ll try and then… I hope

When I click on a document in nextcloud im getting the error “ONLYOFFICE cannot be reached. Please contact admin” i can access via i get the screen says document server running below is my onlyoffice setting in nextcloud

Usually you don’t need to set server addresses in “Advanced server settings”. I can reach your Onlyoffice and your Nextcloud so I assume it works if you delete the addresses, and set the correct address (the “www” one) in the “Document Editing Service address” on top.

If you install the module, it will setup everything for you.


That fixed it thanks a bunch

DocumentServer 5.4.2 - Last Documentserver with mobile editing enabled

Does it mean Install OnlyOffice 5.51 does not have mobile editing enabled?
