Collabora is not opening my files from other location with in the same server

Hi there I have installed Collaboora on my Ngnix server. Also i have installed it on apache2 and added the configuration file to the apache2.conf

Define EXAMPLE_BASE_PATH "/var/www/html"

AliasMatch "^/demo/media/" "${EXAMPLE_BASE_PATH}/demo/media/endpoints.php"

Alias /collebora "${EXAMPLE_BASE_PATH}/collebora"

<Directory "${EXAMPLE_BASE_PATH}/collebora">
	Options Indexes MultiViews
	AllowOverride None
	<IfModule !mod_access_compat.c>
		Require all granted
	<IfModule mod_access_compat.c>
		Order allow,deny
		Allow from all

this is my coolwsd.xml setting

this is my load.php javascript function

function loadDocument() {
        var wopiSrc = window.location.origin + '/demo/media/contracts/1597118297';
        // alert(wopiSrc);
        var filename = '1597118297.docx';
        var wopiClientUrl = "<?php echo $_WOPI_SRC; ?>";
        var wopiClientUrl = "";
        // alert(wopiClientUrl);
        if (!wopiClientUrl) {
            console.log('error: wopi client url not found');

        var wopiUrl = wopiClientUrl+'WOPISrc='+wopiSrc;
        // alert(wopiUrl);
        var formElem = document.getElementById("collabora-submit-form");
        if (!formElem) {
            console.log('error: submit form not found');
        formElem.action = wopiUrl;


this is my endpoint.php function

 function wopiGetFile($documentId) {
        $filePath = "/var/www/html/demo/media/1597118297";
        if (file_exists($filePath)) {
            // Set the appropriate headers for a .docx file
            header('Content-Description: File Transfer');
            header('Content-Type: application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document');
            header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="' . basename($filePath) . '"');
            header('Expires: 0');
            header('Cache-Control: must-revalidate');
            header('Pragma: public');
            header('Content-Length: ' . filesize($filePath));

            // Clear any previous output

            // Read the file and output its content.
           echo readfile($filePath);
        } else {
            // Handle the error if the file does not exist
            header("HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found");
            echo "Error: The requested document was not found on the server.";
        // $fileContent = 'Hello Haider and john';
        // echo $fileContent;

Hmmm, did you intend to write:

  • collebora
    • Notice the ā€˜eā€™!

in your files instead of the correct spelling with ā€˜aā€™:

  • collabora

I see it in 3 spots in your apache.conf file right near the beginning:

Alias /collebora "${EXAMPLE_BASE_PATH}/collebora"

<Directory "${EXAMPLE_BASE_PATH}/collebora">

And welcome to the forum @haider511996. :slight_smile:
