Initial portal user activation not working

Post by pju_szdm » Thu Nov 07, 2019 12:19 pm

Dear everyone,

I installed the docker containers using the install script, with

Code: Select all

-ims false
to deactivate the Mailserver, and restarted the communityserver container with

Code: Select all

docker run -p [...] 
to expose it on port 8080.

On the docker host a postfix MTA is running which is able to deliver e-mails.

When I tried to define the admin user in the initialization wizzard its activation e-mail could not be sent out:

Code: Select all

ASC.Notify - [Welcome to ONLYOFFICE!] sended to [(<] over email.sender, status: Impossible  System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException: Exception of type 'System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException' was thrown.
My questions now are:

a) how do I activate this user without e-mail confirmation? (the

Code: Select all

table in the onlyoffice database contains only an administrator user entry)
b) how do I configure the onlyoffice community server image to use the MTA on the docker host?

All hints appreciated

Sorry for delayed response.
Please note, we released Community Server 10.5 with some hotfixes. Stop and delete Community Server container and run latest version.
Please also try to not indicate the hostname when running a container, just publish the port 8080:80
Tell us the result.
