Installing Community Edition using the provided script

Introduction

Community Edition is a paidfree version free for educational institutions of collaborative system developed to manage documents, projects, customer relationship and email correspondence, all in one place.

Community Edition is shipped in two main versions: as a virtual machine image, compatible with most popular virtual machine managing software, and as an automatic installation script for Linux operating systems with Docker installed. The script will set up Docker containers with all the components necessary for Community Edition correct work and is easy to run, manage and update.

This guide will show you how to install Community Edition to your machine using the provided Docker script.

System requirements

  • CPU
    dual-core 2 GHz or better
  • RAM
    6 GB or more
  • HDD
    at least 40 GB of free space
  • Additional Requirements
    at least 6 GB of swap
  • OS
    amd64 Linux distribution with kernel version 3.10 or later
Though running Community Edition is a very resourceful operation, you will not have to allocate swap space before you start installation. When you run the installation script, a 6 Gb swap file is created automatically.

Getting Community Edition script

Download Community Edition Docker script file. You can do that using our site download pagedownload page. Or the direct download link can be used, if it is more convenient for you:

wget http://download.onlyoffice.com/install/opensource-install.sh

Once the download is finished, you can start the installation process.

Running complete installation of Community Edition

Please note that all installation actions must be performed with root rights.

You can install all Community Edition components and modules at once. To do that run the following command:

bash opensource-install.sh -md "yourdomain.com"

Where yourdomain.com is your own domain that will be used for Mail Server.

Your domain that will be used for maintaining correspondence must be valid and configured for this machine (i.e. it should have the appropriate A record in the DNS settings that points your domain name to the IP address of the machine where Mail Server is installed).
In the command above, the "yourdomain.com" parameter must be understood as a service domain for Mail Server. It is usually specified in the MX record of the domain that will be used for maintaining correspondence. As a rule, the "yourdomain.com" looks like mx1.onlyoffice.com

If you do not have a domain name or simply want to install Community Edition for your local server, you can install it without Mail Server. In case you plan to add it later, you will be able to do that from Control Panel.

For the Community Edition to be able to run the Docker service is necessary. The installation script will check if it is present on the computer and its version is not less than the minimal required. Otherwise the Docker will be installed or updated automatically.

Docker specifies Google DNS servers by default. If your Community Edition server is not going to have access to the Internet, we recommend that you change the default Docker DNS address to the address of your local DNS server. To do that go to the /etc/default/docker file and change the IP address in the following line to the IP address of a DNS server in your local network:
docker_OPTS="--dns 8.8.8.8"

Running Community Edition installation without Mail Server

In case you do not want to install Mail Server just now, you can skip its installation. To do that run the following command:

bash opensource-install.sh -ims false

This will install Community Edition without Mail Server. You can add it later from Control Panel, please see the documentation article to learn how this can be done.

The list of all available script parameters is avaiable with the below command:
bash opensource-install.sh -h
If you choose to run the installation with some additional parameters, please do not skip Control Panel installation, otherwise you will not be able to enter your license key after the installation is finished and add, for instance, Mail Server to your Community Edition instance.

To learn more on how to use all the available script parameters, please refer to this article.

Once the installation is finished you can check Community Edition for correct work. Open a browser and enter the local network computer IP address (please do not use either localhost or 127.0.0.1 network address for the same computer where you have Community Edition installed, use its IP address in the local network instead) to the browser address bar. Community Edition must be up and running indicating the successful installation.
