ONLYOFFICE Docs Community Edition for Linux distributions packages and the source code can be found here:

This guide will show you how to update your ONLYOFFICE Docs Community Edition Linux version to the latest version.

Our support policy is that we support only the latest stable version. We regularly release new versions of ONLYOFFICE Docs which include new features and bug fixes. If you are using an old version of ONLYOFFICE Docs, we recommend upgrading to the latest version.

Starting from version 4.1, ONLYOFFICE Docs uses PostgreSQL instead of MySQL database which had been used in previous versions, so in this guide we will show the upgrade from version 4.1 to the latest available version. This update procedure cannot be applied to earlier versions that use MySQL.

ImportantIf you are using an old Integration Edition version, the only way to update it is to uninstall Integration Edition (onlyoffice-documentserver-ie) and install Enterprise Edition instead of it.
  • On Ubuntu, you can use the following command to uninstall the DEB package: sudo apt-get remove onlyoffice-documentserver-ie
  • On CentOS, you can use the following command to uninstall the RPM package: sudo yum remove onlyoffice-documentserver-ie

Shutting down ONLYOFFICE Docs

Due to the operational characteristic, ONLYOFFICE Docs saves a document only after the document has been closed by all the users who edited it. To avoid data loss, you must forcefully disconnect the ONLYOFFICE Docs users when you need to stop ONLYOFFICE Docs in case of the application update. To do that, execute the following script:
Executing the script may take a long time (up to 5 minutes).
Disconnecting users may take a long time (up to 5 minutes).

Updating ONLYOFFICE Docs for Linux

Updating using the script

Download the installation script:


Execute the following command:

bash -u true
bash -u true
bash -u true

Type N and press Enter to update ONLYOFFICE Docs from DEB/RPM packages.

Updating manually

Installing dependencies

Some of the dependencies required for ONLYOFFICE Docs correct work are not included into Ubuntu 14.04 by default, so they require additional steps for the newer versions of ONLYOFFICE Docs.

The following dependencies will be installed automatically if you use Ubuntu 14.04 LTS or later when you update ONLYOFFICE Docs (in case some of them were not installed with ONLYOFFICE Docs earlier versions for some reason):

  • libcurl3
  • libxml2
  • fonts-dejavu
  • fonts-liberation
  • ttf-mscorefonts-installer
  • fonts-crosextra-carlito
  • fonts-takao-gothic
  • fonts-opensymbol

Earlier distributions might require their manual installation.

If you want to update version 4.1, you will need to manually add the repository containing the proper Node.js package version (this action is not required when updating version 4.2).

Add repository:

curl -sL | sudo bash - 
Ubuntu distributions prior to 14.04 LTS might require some other dependencies to be installed.
Installing new version of ONLYOFFICE Docs
For Ubuntu and derivatives

Update repository:

sudo apt-get update

And install the latest version of ONLYOFFICE Docs:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
For CentOS and derivatives
sudo yum update onlyoffice-documentserver
sudo yum update onlyoffice-documentserver-ee
sudo yum update onlyoffice-documentserver-de

The database and all necessary files should be picked up automatically from the previous version. Please run ONLYOFFICE Docs and check it for correct work.

The database schema has been changed in v6.3. When updating to v6.3, you may also need to upgrade the database schema to ensure the ability to use the password protection feature.
  1. Download the script for upgrading the database schema.
  2. Execute the script using the command line.
    • For PostgreSQL: psql -U onlyoffice -W onlyoffice < {path-to-upgradev630.sql}
    • For MySQL: mysql -u root -p onlyoffice < {path-to-upgradev630.sql}

    Specify the password used when creating the database (onlyoffice).
