The collabora app is just the connector to the collabora server. This is missing in your installation.


Thanks for the 'tip' :sweat_smile:


Well, its just the facts :slight_smile:

If you want to use collabora or only office for editing documents, I recommend downloading the ownCloud appliance - there you will have everything you need.


Thanks, but we have a running installations integrate with our AD and full of data, maybe better not start from scratch. Thanks anyway :wink:


Do you have a collabora server in your environment?


No, i'm going to install it on my test environment, on the owncloud-test server... if possible.
