Hi Vincent. Thanks for your post. It was very useful for me, trying to do on Debian9 the same as you’ve done on CentOS.
Everything is working with Nextcloud13, but I have a problem with Collabora. Starting the loolwsd service results in a process listening on port 9981, but no process is listening on port 9980.
The only warning log line starting the service is:

kit-16319-16315 2018-07-06 11:53:20.903225 [ loolkit ] WRN Waking up dead poll thread [kit], started: false, finished: false| ./net/Socket.hpp:550

I really know nothing about CODE and how it works, so I’m no able to debug this situation.
Googling around “collabora nothing on port 9980” gave me no clue.
Any suggestion to point me in the righ direction?
Many thanks

I found the problem!

  1. on debian 9 i examied listenin ports via ss -l4 and it returned no 9980 port, but ss -ntpl showed me port 9980 too. So the process actually is listening on that port.
  2. the error I got opening an odt file from nexcloud, indeed, was not related to the port problem. I debugged it and I found it was a certificate problem because I use self-signed certificate. Appending my certificate to /var/www/nextcloud/resources/config/ca-bundle.crt solved the issue.
    Hope it helps someone with my same isuue.

Hi g,

I used this how to


to write my ansible playbooks

and both methods are working. So maybe you’ll find te answer to your question there.

Hello gdavid,

Indeed, I use Centos but the tutorial is general :).

I am happy that my tutorial was able to help you and that you have solved your problem.

Moreover, I encounter the same problem concerning the error on Collabora even if it works correctly. If you find the solution, I’m interested

“kit-22935-22927 2018-07-18 12: 04: 39.570028 [loolkit] WRN Wake the dead query thread [kit], started: false, finished: false | ./net/Socket.hpp:550”

Best regards,

I Vincent. As I wrote on my previous post (answering to myself), the solution I fond to the error is related to self signed certificates

In practice, you have to perform this from shell:
# cat /path/to/my/certificate.crt >> /var/www/nextcloud/resources/config/ca-bundle.crt
Be sure to use double “>” sign, otherwise you delete all the others certification authorities pre-stored in the cert bundle.
Hope it helps


I’m sorry to bring up an old subject, but I can’t do the operation on the collabora part.
For information, I am obliged to relaunch the container collaborates very regularly which means that I would like to implement this solution.

I installed the official packages for my debian 9 version, I also made the modifications of the different ones indicated at the beginning of the topic.

  1. the CODE 4 log file is not created so it is not impossible to have a trace.

  2. here is the error I have in the nginx logs concerning the nextcloud

    failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream, client: X.X.X.X, server: tld.fr, request: "GET /loleaflet/dist/admin/admin.html HTTP/2.0", upstream: "", host: "tld.fr"

Do you have any idea where the problem might come from?




Avez-vous accès en localhost via ?
Le service est bien démarré ? Avez-vous des logs de démarrage de loolwsd ?


j’ai trouvé la solution, le problème venait de l’accès au fichier de log qui ne pouvais pas ce faire…
ainsi qu’un problème pour la lecture des fichier pour le certificat.

cela fonctionne parfaitement, c’est même plus rapide.

merci pour l’idée.


I found the solution, the problem came from the access to the log file that could not do this…
as well as a problem with reading the files for the certificate.

it works perfectly, it’s even faster.

Thank you for the idea.
