Collabora Online

Install from the Software Center or use the command line:

Virtual host configuration

Collabora Online requires a dedicated virtual host and it’s only accessible from HTTPS with a valid certificate.


Collabora Online will not be enabled without a dedicated virtual host

To configure Collobora Online, execute:

config setprop coolwsd VirtualHost
signal-event nethserver-collabora-update

After virtual host configuration, obtain a valid HTTPS certificate via Let’s Encrypt from Server certificate section of Server Manager interface.


Collabora Online will be automatically enabled in Nextcloud if the package nethserver-nextcloud is present when the virtual host is configured, otherwise you can enable with:

yum install nethserver-nextcloud
signal-event nethserver-collabora-update

If your instance of Nextcloud is not installed in the same server of Collabora Online, you must set the host name of Nextcloud in the prop AllowWopiHost:

config setprop coolwsd AllowWopiHost
signal-event nethserver-collabora-update

And manually configure the Nextcloud richdocuments app.
