If you want to use ONLYOFFICE Docs together with ONLYOFFICE Groups, they must be installed on two different machines.

This guide will show you how to install ONLYOFFICE Docs Developer Edition Linux version to your machine.

System requirements

  • CPU
    dual core 2 GHz or better
  • RAM
    2 GB or more
  • HDD
    at least 40 GB of free space
  • Additional requirements
    at least 4 GB of swap
  • OS
    64-bit Debian, Ubuntu or other compatible distribution with kernel version 3.13 or later
  • Additional requirements
    • PostgreSQL: version 9.1 or later
    • NGINX: version 1.3.13 or later
    • libstdc++6: version 4.8.4 or later
    • Redis
    • RabbitMQ

Installing ONLYOFFICE Docs

Installation with Debian based distributives also requires the presence of libstdc++6, NGINX and PostgreSQL in the system.

All the necessary instrutions for these components and their dependencies installation can be found at their official websites.

There are other dependencies installed together with ONLYOFFICE Docs:

  • libcurl3
  • libxml2
  • supervisor
  • fonts-dejavu
  • fonts-liberation
  • ttf-mscorefonts-installer
  • fonts-crosextra-carlito
  • fonts-takao-gothic
  • fonts-opensymbol

These dependencies are installed automatically when you use Ubuntu 14.04 LTS or later. Earlier distributions might require their manual installation.

Installing dependencies

ONLYOFFICE Docs uses NGINX and PostgreSQL as database. Dependencies found in the system repository will be installed automatically at ONLYOFFICE Docs installation using the apt-get install command.

Installing and configuring PostgreSQL:

Install the PostgreSQL version included in your version of Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install postgresql
If you want to install some other PostgreSQL version from the PostgreSQL Repository, please see the official PostgreSQL documentation for more detail on that.

After PostgreSQL is installed, create the PostgreSQL database and user:

The database user must have the onlyoffice name. You can specify any 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;"

Installing redis:

sudo apt-get install redis-server

Installing rabbitmq:

sudo apt-get install rabbitmq-server
Ubuntu distributives prior to 14.04 LTS might require some other dependencies to be installed.

Ubuntu 18.04 will require to install nginx-extras. This is done using the command:

sudo apt-get install nginx-extras
Changing the default ONLYOFFICE Docs port

By default ONLYOFFICE Docs listens to the incoming connections using port 80. Starting with version 4.3 you can change the port for ONLYOFFICE Docs if you plan to use it instead of the default one.

If you are going to change the default port, make sure that it is open for the incoming/outgoing connections. See the complete list of the ports used by ONLYOFFICE Docs.

To do that you will need to change the default port for the debconf system, running the command:

echo onlyoffice-documentserver onlyoffice/ds-port select <PORT_NUMBER> | sudo debconf-set-selections
echo onlyoffice-documentserver-ee onlyoffice/ds-port select <PORT_NUMBER> | sudo debconf-set-selections
echo onlyoffice-documentserver-de onlyoffice/ds-port select <PORT_NUMBER> | sudo debconf-set-selections

Please write the port number instead of the <PORT_NUMBER> in the above command.

Warning If you want to change the ONLYOFFICE Docs protocol to HTTPS, do not change the port to 443, but use this instruction instead.

There are additional options which can be used for ONLYOFFICE Docs installation. Please read this section for more information on them.

After that you can continue with ONLYOFFICE Docs installation.

Installing ONLYOFFICE Docs

Add GPG key:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys CB2DE8E5

Add ONLYOFFICE Docs repository:

echo "deb https://download.onlyoffice.com/repo/debian squeeze main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/onlyoffice.list
While the APT package is built against Debian Squeeze, it is compatible with a number of Debian derivatives (including Ubuntu) which means you can use the same repository across all these distributions.

When installing ONLYOFFICE Docs on Debian, add the contrib component to /etc/apt/sources.list. To learn more, you can refer to the Debian documentation.

Update the package manager cache:

sudo apt-get update

Install mscorefonts:

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

Install ONLYOFFICE Docs

sudo apt-get install onlyoffice-documentserver
sudo apt-get install onlyoffice-documentserver-ee
sudo apt-get install onlyoffice-documentserver-de
During the installation process, you will be asked to provide a password for the onlyoffice PostgreSQL user. Please enter the onlyoffice password that you have specified when configuring PostgreSQL.

After that ONLYOFFICE Docs will be run as a process. The package will be updated just like any other deb package.

Now you can enter http://localhost in your browser address bar to open the ONLYOFFICE Docs welcome page where you will find further instructions on how to enable document examples or integrate online editors into your web application using the provided API.

To connect ONLYOFFICE Docs to ONLYOFFICE Groups, please refer to this instruction.

Running ONLYOFFICE Docs using HTTPS

In most cases accessing the portal via HTTPS protocol is much more secure than via HTTP which is used by default. You can easily run ONLYOFFICE Docs using secure connection. Please see the details here to learn more on how this can be done.

Registering your Developer EditionEnterprise Edition version

If you bought Developer EditionEnterprise Edition and received the license.lic file, you can place it to your installation to obtain the software full version.

When you are a Debian based Linux distributive user, the license.lic file is placed to the following folder:

/var/www/onlyoffice/Data/license.lic

After that your version of Developer EditionEnterprise Edition will become registered and full-featured.
