LibreOffice Online

Collabora Online

With LibreOffice Online you can edit office documents in your browser. You need a working LibreOffice Online server. More info on https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-online/

For LibreOffice Online to work you need to setup SSL and allow your Group-Office URL to use it. In case you need some guidance on how to set it up we wrote a blog post on how to setup LibreOffice Online here:

Install the Office Online module from the Business package at System Settings -> Modules.

Install Office Online

Reload Group-Office and go to System Settings -> Office Online.

Then add your LibreOffice Online Service. The default port for LibreOffice online is 9980. BUt with the reverse proxy setup above we’re using the standard SSL port so it’s not necessary to specify it.

Add LibreOffice Online Service

Now every user can go to the files module and use it. Just right click a file and choose “Open with…”.

Use LibreOffice Online Service

Note

If you get a 404 error when editing because /wopi is not found then you probably are missing the alias in your webserver configuration. The Group-Office Debian and Docker packages automatically create this but with the tarball package you have to do this manually. Example configuration can be found here.
