How to install

The current version requires the PostgreSQL version included in your version of Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install postgresql

Once installed, create the PostgreSQL database and user. The created database must have onlyoffice both for user and password:

sudo -i -u postgres psql -c "CREATE DATABASE onlyoffice;"
sudo -i -u postgres psql -c "CREATE USER onlyoffice WITH password 'onlyoffice';"
sudo -i -u postgres psql -c "GRANT ALL privileges ON DATABASE onlyoffice TO onlyoffice;"

Run the following commands to configure the database:

export PGPASSWORD=onlyoffice
psql -hlocalhost -Uonlyoffice -d onlyoffice -f createdb.sql -w

Finally install ONLYOFFICE Document Server:

snap install onlyoffice-ds --beta

Reporting feedback

Hi. Would love to test this but I need a bit more information on how I’d deploy it on my server. For example, can I assign the port number or would I have to run it in a container?

Thanks for your work on this.

Hi! You can find all the info (how to run and configure Document Server, change the port, activate SSL, etc.) on GitHub:

Perfect. Thanks!

I’ll give this a spin and feed back to you.

Sadly, changing the port doesn’t work for me. If I try to change it to 8011 there’s no server listening there but I see 2 new node processes listening on 8000 and 8080. If I stop my haproxy instance (which is listening on 80) I then see 80 being occupied by the snap.

Hi Neil! We’ve forwarded your message to ONLYOFFICE developers. In the meantime, you could leave the issue on GitHub here: Thanks a lot for your feedback!
