Collabora Online

Hi guys

I’m sorry if this has already been posted in the past and there is an answer in the forum. I am new to owncloud - fabulous service by the way.

I am getting this error when I try to open a file directly from within my owncloud. I am access owncloud via the weblink as opposed to the desktop app.

Any guidance appreciated


Collabora Online: Cannot connect to the host “https://localhost:9980”. Please ask your administrator to check the Collabora Online server setting. The exact error message was: cURL error 7: Failed to connect to localhost port 9980: Connection refused

Do you have a Collabora Server installed? It is a seperate VM or Docker image, not part of ownCloud.

need some help. how to do it?

We describe this here.
The easiest way is likely the Univention Appliance which comes with both ownCloud and Collabora preinstalled …

Dear hodyroff, need your help. I have already installed Owncloud on my server and lunched it. But Collabora doesnt work, same error (Failed to connect to localhost port 9980)

Do I need reinstall whole Owncloud to make Collabora work? At link it was mantioned that CODE is already integrated and preconfigured ownCloud.

Hi Sergii,

I would recommend to double check your Collabora installation was successful.
Check with netstat whether the process has bound to the port, if not check if it’s running and why it failed with systemctl. If it is bound to the port, double check that there is no firewall blocking the connection.
Let me know should you have any further questions.
