Manual to support preview of different file format


 

  1. Install OpenOffice in local system to work with LifeRay in order to display the preview of different types of file. LifeRay will interact with OpenOffice to convert

Current file format into pdf format as LifeRay internally supports PDFBox.

soffice -headless -accept="socket,host=127.0.0.1,port=8100;urp;"
