How to Connect ONLYOFFICE Online Editors to Nextcloud?

Hello, everyone!

We are glad to announce that our developers have updated the ONLYOFFICE app for ownCloud and from now on any Nextcloud user can use it to integrate our full-featured online editors with Nextcloud for document editing and collaboration.

Today we will learn how to do it in 3 easy steps.

What we will need before going ahead:
  • ONLYOFFICE Document Server v.4.2 or later. You can install it using Docker, .deb or .rpm packages.
  • Nextcloud v.11.0.2 or later.
  • ownCloud/Nextcloud ONLYOFFICE integration app. The application is already available in the Nextcloud App Store. It is distributed under AGPL v.3 with the source code listed on GitHub.
How to proceed

Step 1. Download the ownCloud/Nextcloud ONLYOFFICE integration app from GitHub and place it to your Nextcloud server into the /apps directory.

    cd apps/
    git clone onlyoffice

Step 2. Open Nextcloud. Go to Apps >> Not Enabled >> ONLYOFFICE and click the Enable button.


Step 3. Go to the Nextcloud Admin panel. Scroll down to the ONLYOFFICE section and enter your document server address. Save the changes.

That is all. Now you can create new text documents, spreadsheets and presentations and edit them using ONLYOFFICE online editors.
