Hello everyone!

We are continually working to simplify the ONLYOFFICE installation. Last week we have released a new solution that allows you to easily deploy ONLYOFFICE Community Edition – Community Server and Document Server – on a single Windows machine. So we’ll see how it works out.


Step 1. Go to SourceForge and download the latest version of ONLYOFFICE Community Edition – ONLYOFFICE_Community_Edition_Win-install.(version number).exe. Just click the corresponding link and save the .exe file to your machine.

Step 2. Install the prerequisites. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the Prerequisites Wizard instructions to install prerequisites required to run Community Edition.

– Start the installation process. It may take several minutes.


Step 4. Run ONLYOFFICE Community Edition clicking the Finish button.


The welcome page of your web office will be opened. Enter all the required data to access it and start working.
