Issues editing files off server in browser

Post by mindtpi » Wed Jan 15, 2020 9:53 am

Hi everyone
I've installed communityserver version in Docker on a Synology NAS. Its all installed fine but if I try to click on, for example, one of the sample files in My Documents, rather than opening in the web editor, it just downloads the file. I'm using macOS 10.15.2 and Safari (have test Chrome) but it also does the same in Windows 10. I've basically just installed it as it comes with out changing anything but I can't edit, only download. Has any one got any ideas? I suspect it has something to do with Settings >> Integration >> Document Service and the Document Service Location settings which are basically blank:

If I try and change these I just get an error "Api url: Service is not defined" - not sure if its related but that's the only relevant thing can see.
Thanks for any advice!

Community Server alone cannot edit documents, you also need a Document Server for this purpose. Please remove the current container and use this guide to install the product: ... ation.aspx
