Ubuntu Document Server disable test example

Document Editor version: 7.1.1
Type of installation of the Document Server (docker, deb/rpm, exe)
OS: .deb on Xubuntu 20.04
Browser version: Firefox 102

OnlyOffice newb here, brand new install, followed installation instructions from here - Installing ONLYOFFICE Docs for Debian, Ubuntu, and derivatives - ONLYOFFICE

Connected to localhost: and get the /welcome/ page, which says use the integrated test example to check if editors are running correctly, so I did, and they work fine. So now, how do I disable the test example, like it says to? How do I create my own local profile with my own metadata, etc.? I am only looking to edit local files, not integrate and collaborate.

TIA

UPDATE: I RTFM’d a little. Question: Is there a way just to edit the Text Example config’s metadata like First Name, Last Name and just compose local docs with it?

Hello @cthulhubuddha

Is there a way just to edit the Text Example config’s metadata like First Name, Last Name and just compose local docs with it?

Templates for new files creation in the integrated example are located here: /var/www/onlyoffice/documentserver/document-templates/new/en-US#
I’m not sure that I understand question about ‘First Name, Last Name’ right, please provide us with details.
Anyway, this is wrong way. Integrated example is just a test mechanism. We do not recommend to use it in production. You have to integrate DS to your own storage.
Different way, you can use Desktop Editors for local file editing:

thank you, i realized i should be using Desktop Editor for my purposes after this post, so i think i’m in the right direction now, thanks!
