Collabora Online is a powerful LibreOffice-based online office that supports all major document, spreadsheet and presentation file formats, which you can integrate into your own infrastructure.
Key features are collaborative editing and excellent office file format support.
This package offers a configuration of the open source development edition https://www.collaboraoffice.com/code/
A VirtualHost property is to be filled with a domain name so the daemon will be reversed proxy through your apache httpd server. Do not forget to also define this Virtualdomain to your list of domains, enable it for let's encrypt if you use it, and also define this domain to point to your server at your DNS provider.
Collabora Online requires a dedicated virtual host and it’s only accessible from HTTPS with a valid certificate.
yum install smeserver-extrarepositories-collaboraoffice yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install smeserver-collabora collaboraofficebasis-en-US collaboraoffice-dict-en
then you will need to configure let's say domain collabora.mydomain.com
configuration part for domain + let's encrypt and nextcloud on the same server, please just change the content of the variable $MYDOMAIN
MYDOMAIN="collabora.mydomain.com" config setprop coolwsd VirtualHost $MYDOMAIN db domains set $MYDOMAIN domain Content Primary Description collabora Nameservers localhost letsencryptSSLcert enabled TemplatePath Collabora signal-event domain-create $MYDOMAIN expand-template /etc/dehydrated/domains.txt dehydrated -c signal-event smeserver-collabora-update
then all is configured in nextcloud installed on the same server
Reminder configure your domain DNS to point to your server!
You can also add tho the yum install line the dictionnary you need, or add one latter

Some of the properties are not shown, but are defaulted in a template or a script. Here a more comprehensive list with default and expected values :
|VirtualHost||domain||you need one domain configured to allow it to work with nextcloud|
|AllowWopiHost||comma separated list of ip or domains||list of domains allowed to access collabora, by default empty. the server itself and nextcloud defined Virtualhost are added to this list|
|access||private, public,local||not defined for localhost use only; please leave it as it|
|TCPPort||port number||default is listening on localhost:9980, but please no SSL configuration keep it this way, and rather use http proxy with VirtualHost property|
