OnlyOffice is a payed software, the limitations for 20 Users is because of the free community edition. If you need more connections you need to pay for a license, to hack around the license limitations in the free edition is certainly not legitimate.
I’m no pro in license but the code of the CommunityServer is under GNU GPL (find it here) which means I can modify the code and redistribute it.
I use Nextcloud and OnlyOffce for ethical reasons, getting out of Google and encouraging free software. I’m really not against making money with free software, but it is in my rights to modify the code if I want to
Same case as you.
It’s a shame when documentation isn’t up to date.
Only good technician can build OnlyOffice correctly.
Therefore i don’t have touch yet the limitation. But i prefer to be docker-INdependant rather than using it.
This isn’t an issue to solve. It’s easily done by changing a single number in the source code.
The limit is there basically to ensure quality of service.
Unless you really know what you are doing and have setup a serious server (cluster), anything more that 20 simultaneous users is unrealistic, especially with the new simplified php version.
However, I am really wondering who sets up a home system with more that 20 simultaneous users? That seems already like a high limit even for most small companies.
And if you need more than that, you should really first learn a bit more about servers and how to do simple code edits and recompile a webapp
I also have the same problem about compiling. @Krischan tell me how you compile OnlyOffice Document Server ? I’ll glad if you succeed.
For the moment, my biggest client have 50 Nextcloud users and never reached the 20´ limit. So i’m not in a hurry about compiling OO
