This page describes how to install onlyoffice document server as a rpm contrib. This is of particular interest if you use Nextcloud


Contrib 10:
The latest version of smeserver-onlyoffice is available in the SME repository, click on the version number(s) for more information.


before proceeding you should have Nextcloud installed, and having a dedicated domain pointing to your server. This domain should be different from nextcloud domain. You should also consider isntalling and configuring Letsencrypt to have a dedicated cert per domain. In case you are limited in the use of extra domain you might use a dedicated port to use nginx externally, but this add some limit in term of ssl certificate, and we suggest to reconsider the dedicated domain.

yum -y install --enablerepo=smecontribs
yum install smeserver-extrarepositories-pgsql  smeserver-extrarepositories-onlyoffice -y
db yum_repositories setprop pgsql13 status enabled
signal-event yum-modify
yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install smeserver-onlyoffice

then, if you have dedicated subdomain and use let's Encrypt (or have trusted certs)

config setprop onlyoffice VirtualHost $MYDOMAIN RejectUnauthorized true access local
db domains set $MYDOMAIN domain Content Primary Description onlyoffice Nameservers localhost letsencryptSSLcert enabled TemplatePath Onlyoffice
signal-event domain-create $MYDOMAIN
expand-template /etc/dehydrated/domains.txt
dehydrated -c
signal-event smeserver-onlyoffice-update

then, if you share one domain/subdomain and you have trusted certificate for it [will use dedicated port 8082, needs opening behind a firewall]

config setprop onlyoffice RejectUnauthorized true access public
signal-event smeserver-onlyoffice-update

then, if you do not have trusted certs, but only self signed, and only one domain/subdomain [will use dedicated port 8082, needs opening behind a firewall]

config setprop onlyoffice RejectUnauthorized false access public
signal-event smeserver-onlyoffice-update

NB: in two last situations you could choose private if you only want it to be accessible from LAN.


you can list the available configuration with the following command :

config show onlyoffice

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 :

property default values
dbname onlyoffice string for pgsql
dbuser onlyoffice string for pgsql
dbpass **generated** string for pgsql
VirtualHost domain name e.g.
TCPPort 8082 port number port where https connection can be done
token *generated* string > 32 chars secret key to be able to use the service
RejectUnauthorized true/false true if empty; will reject the connection from untrusted ssl certs to the onlyoffice service. It is also used for nextcloud to reject non trusted cert from onlyoffice.
access local local,private, public
status enabled enabled,disabled


yum remove smeserver-onlyoffice  onlyoffice
