Federated editing / Global Scale
Collaborative editing of federated documents requires richdocuments version 3.4 on all involved servers. Besides that the following conditions must be met:
- Make sure the remote server is added as a trusted server
- Allow any domain to embed Collabora Online in a frame:
<frame_ancestors>https://*</frame_ancestors>must be set in loolwsd.xml
Note: Due to our content security policy we cannot open a document on a remote instance without reloading the page to allow Nextcloud embedding the remote collabora instance in a frame.
Scripted installation (Ubuntu), Server + Nextcloud app
The developers of the Nextcloud VM has made a script that you can use. Please remember to check the variables in the script to suit your config before you run it, though it should work out of the box on all Ubuntu servers from 16.04 an upwards.
The only thing you must have prepared before you run the script is to have SSL (https://) on your Nextcloud domain and to setup a DNS record to a new domain that you will host Collabora on (office.domain.com for example) and point that your server. SSL is set up with Let's Encrypt.
To get the script, please type the folloing command:
wget https://github.com/nextcloud/vm/blob/master/apps/collabora.sh and then run the script with
sudo bash nextant.sh.
Please report any issues regarding the script in the Nextcloud VM repo.
