Server Setup: Connecting Document Server to Community Server

Server Setup: Connecting Document Server to Community Server

Postby Merc » Wed Jul 01, 2015 12:13 am

The Help Center has notes on connecting Document Server to Community Server by modifying the configuration file web.appsettings.config in the folder /var/www/onlyoffice/WebStudio/ of the Community Server computer.

(see https://helpcenter.onlyoffice.com/server/linux/document/connect-document-server.aspx)

Community Server setup has a set of fields under Document Server Location that also record the server offering document services.

Should one or both of these be configured for a Community-Document Server pair?

Are they used for the same purpose or are they different?

Further, what exactly do the fields in the Document Service Location setup specify? They are:

Document Editing Service Address
Document Command Service Address
Document Storage Service Address
Document Conversion Service Address

Thanks for you help.

Document Service is the server service which allows to perform the document viewing and editing.
Command Service is the server service used to notify about the events when the document editing is being done.
Storage Service is the server service which is used to get the external link to the opened document.
Conversion Service is the server service which allows to convert the document file into the appropriate OfficeOpen XML format.

Thank you for the descriptions. That helps. Can you clarify which server has which role?

For example, in the case where we have a two-server Linux setup or two VMs, would the assignment be

Document Editing Service Address >> Document Server IP or domain name
Document Command Service Address >> Document Server IP or domain name
Document Storage Service Address >> Community Server IP or domain name
Document Conversion Service Address >> Document Server IP or domain name

Further, getting back to the original point, when setting up a Community Server-Document Server system should these fields be filled along with modifying web.appsettings.config? That is, should you do both?

Thanks again.

1) You are right: for edit, command and conversation services you have to specify the ip address\domain name of the document server. In case of using Storage Service: simply specify the ip address of the machine with Community Server or any alternative machine

2) About web.appsettings.config file. In the community server ver. 8.5 when you fill in the form "Document Service Location" on the portal with the settings, these setting will be added to the web.appsettings.config file automatically. So you may edit document settings either on the portal or in the web.appsettings.config file. In the community server ver. earlier than 8.5 there were not such settings as "Document Service Location" on the portal. So settings could be changed only in web.appsettings.config file

Will the current release of the Docker Community Server automatically configure itself if it detects a (linked) Document Server or do you still have to input the data once you have the pair running?

Yes, current Docker Community Server automatically configures itself and links Document and Mail Server, if you follow the instruction carefully.
