Here is how to do it.

1. Install the Community Document Server App. Use the search keywords ‘document’ or ‘community’ in the app installation screen in Nextcloud. Click “Download and Enable”.

For installation from the command line, use:

occ app:install documentserver_community

(Please note: installation will take a while as the app is big).

Note: In the install, I kept getting an error:

A review of my error log shoed the error as as php memory error:

[23-Mar-2020 23:44:24 UTC] PHP Fatal error:  Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 315857416 bytes) in /home2/domain/public_html/lib/private/Installer.php on line 285

In cPanel. I went to the MultiPHP INI Editor changed the value from 256M to 2056M.

The, the install worked!

2. Next, install the OnlyOffice App Use the search keywords ‘onlyoffice’ in the app installation screen in Nextcloud. For installation from the command line, use: occ app:install onlyoffice (There is no need to configure anything!).

Now, check a file to see if the app works. It should. 🙂
