Grab the CODE

The easiest way to install CODE for a quick tryout is to download it as a virtual appliance from the Univention App Center.This appliance contains the Collabora Online Development Edition, and the additional software you need to get you up and running in minutes. You can choose between two types of integration, CODE + Nextcloud or CODE + ownCloud. Each appliance is available in four formats: KVM, VirtualBox, VMware Workstation and VMware ESXi.

Getting set up

It is highly recommended to set up a reverse proxy in front of CODE, either you run CODE from Docker, or you use native packages. It is easy, and this way CODE can be reached on standard HTTP or HTTPS ports. We provide sample configuration files for Apache2 and Nginx. If you want SSL, we recommend certificates from Let’s Encrypt.
