Update Documentconverter from earlier versions to 7.8.2
For a successful update to 7.8.2 some manual adjustments are necessary on the middleware node(s) as well as on the documentconverter node(s) after the package upgrade. For a single node deployment both sections have to be adhered to.
Changes to the configuration file documentconverter.properties need to be applied to the new one. For versions up to (including) 7.8.1 it was located at

Middleware (aka Backend or Documentconverter Client)
The property pointing to the documentverter service has to be adjusted. It is now mandatory to set this entry – not only in the remote documentconverter setup but also if the documentconverter runs locally. The property used changed from /opt/open-xchange/etc/documentconverter.properties: com.openexchange.documentconverter.RemoteBaseUrl= to /opt/open-xchange/etc/documentconverter-client.props: com.openexchange.documentconverter.client.remoteDocumentConverterUrl= For a single-node deployment this reads (in one line) com.openexchange.documentconverter.client.remoteDocumentConverterUrl= http://localhost:8008/documentconverterws Note: If the logging configuration has been changed for documentconverter entries the logger needs a small change. The new class is name="com.openexchange.documentconverter"
