Installation example on Ubuntu 20.04

Import signing keys:

cd /usr/share/keyrings && sudo wget

Add repository:

sudo echo "deb ./" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/collaboraonline.sources

Install packages

sudo apt update && sudo apt install coolwsd code-brand


Edit /etc/coolwsd/coolwsd.xml. Collabora Online (coolwsd) service runs via systemd. After editing the configuration file, you have to restart the service:

sudo systemctl restart coolwsd

The default configuration is looking for an SSL certificate and key, which are not present, so probably it’s the best to disable SSL, and optionally enable SSL termination, then set up the reverse proxy.

Full configuration examples for reverse proxy setup can be found in the Collabora Online documentation:

sudo coolconfig set ssl.enable false
sudo coolconfig set ssl.termination true
sudo coolconfig set
sudo coolconfig set-admin-password
sudo systemctl restart coolwsd
systemctl status coolwsd
