Unable to preview document files in Alfresco 6.2-ga

Hello, i need help. I have completely failed to preview document files (PDF, Word, Excel) in Alfresco 6.2-ga since i installed it on Centos 7 VPS. Using Docker containers. (Error: Could not load pdf content).  Only image files can render properly without problems.

I have tried following some advise on forums such as enabling tranform.service and setting tranform timeouts in alfresco-global.properties  file but i still failed.  

transform.service.enabled=true

## Legacy external executables 
alfresco-pdf-renderer.url=http://localhost:8090/
img.url=http://localhost:8090/
jodconverter.url=http://localhost:8090/
tika.url=http://localhost:8090/
transform.misc.url=http://localhost:8090/

# External locations 
#-------------
jodconverter.officeHome=/opt/libreoffice6.1/
jodconverter.portNumbers=8100
jodconverter.enabled=true

---
etc

Error Message is "Could not load pdf content" and prompts to download instead. 

My file names are not long and the files are not large (<1MB).

How can i solve this problem. Please help, Thanks!

Unless you are running transformation services locally, these properties won't help.

Try configuring these properties for legacy transformation service:

transform.service.enabled=false
local.transform.service.enabled=false
legacy.transform.service.enabled=true

alfresco-pdf-renderer.root=/<path-to-pdf-renderer-installation>/alfresco-pdf-renderer
alfresco-pdf-renderer.exe=${alfresco-pdf-renderer.root}/alfresco-pdf-renderer

img.root=/usr/lib64/ImageMagick-6.9.10
img.dyn=/usr/bin
img.gslib=/usr/bin
img.exe=${img.dyn}/convert
img.config=${img.root}/config-Q16
img.coders=${img.root}/modules-Q16/coders

ooo.exe=/opt/libreoffice6.1/program/soffice.bin
ooo.enabled=false
ooo.port=8100
jodconverter.enabled=true
jodconverter.officeHome=/opt/libreoffice6.1
jodconverter.portNumbers=8100
