We recommend to use the Docker Version, since it is the easiest way to repair or upgrade an existing installation.
Supported ONLYOFFICE version
Latest tested version: 5.2.8
We recommend not to use any newer version until it's marked here as "tested" as we can not support versions, which have not been tested by us with the current PowerFolder Server version.
ONLYOFFICE Changelog: https://github.com/ONLYOFFICE/DocumentServer/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md

Updating from version 4.x.x
When updating from version 4 a re-installation of OnlyOffice is needed. It is not possible to upgrade the version. Additionally a new license key file is needed to run the latest version. The old license key for version 4.x is invalid for all version above 5.x

The Docker version installation is relatively easy to perform. Just follow the guide in the ONLYOFFICE help center: https://helpcenter.onlyoffice.com/server/integration-edition/docker/docker-installation.aspx
Place the keyfile in this path:
