How-To install Collabora in Docker with Nextcloud 23

  • Have a subdomain with correct A and AAA registrations : office.cloud.com
  • Have a working Nextcloud instance : cloud.com
  • Install Docker Collabora community edition : Docker Hub
  • Launch it with this command line : docker run -t -d -p 127.0.0.1:9980:9980 -e “domain=cloud\.com” -e “server_name=office\.cloud\.com” --restart always --cap-add MKNOD collabora/code
  • Don’t forget the server_name parameter !
  • Activate mods on Apache2 : ssl proxy_http proxy_wstunnel proxy
  • Acquire a Let’sEncrypt certificate for this subdomain.
  • Create and activate the Vhost :
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName office.cloud.com
Redirect permanent / https://office.cloud.com/
</VirtualHost>


<VirtualHost *:443>
ServerName office.cloud.com
