Install OnlyOffice on Debian 11

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install OnlyOffice on Debian 11. Are you looking for a powerful office suite that is both open-source and user-friendly? Look no further than OnlyOffice. OnlyOffice is a comprehensive productivity suite that includes document editing, project management, CRM, and more. In this guide, we will show you how to install and configure OnlyOffice on Debian 11. We will cover everything from downloading the software to setting up your first document.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of OnlyOffice’s open-source office suite on a Debian 11 (Bullseye).


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Debian 11.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for OnlyOffice.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
