Installing AsteriskNOW on remote server

Postby guiguizmo » Mon Jun 15, 2015 11:10 am

Hello all,

I'm trying since a couple of days to install Asterisk and FreePBX on my remote dedicated web server.

I've followed every tutorial I could find to do this.

First I've tried to install Asterisk and FreePBX on Debian 7 (http://wiki.freepbx.org/display/HTGS/In ... ian+Wheezy) ... no success
Then I've tried to install Asterisk and FreePBX on CentOS 6.6 (http://wiki.freepbx.org/display/HTGS/In ... CentOS+6.5) ... still not
And today I've tried to install AsteriskNOW on my CentOS 6.6 with this tutorial (which was much simpler than installing manually everything) : https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/ ... k+Packages
But I can't access to FreePBX GUI and this tutorial doesn't tell how to do it.

I've then several questions :
- is FreePBX included in AsteriskNOW ?
- if no, how can I install FreePBX ?
- if yes how can I access it (are there configurations to do ...) ?

I'm a bit lost, on AsteriskNOW page (http://www.asterisk.org/downloads/asterisknow), it is said that AsteriskNOW is "a complete Linux distribution with Asterisk, the DAHDI driver framework, and, the FreePBX administrative GUI". I see that installing AsteriskNOW on my own computer could be easy (https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/ ... steriskNOW) but what I want is to install it on my dedicated server ... at least I wan't to have Asterisk and FreePBX on it.

I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks a lot.

AsteriskNOW can only be installed on a bare machine. If you want to install on top of an existing OS, you must install Asterisk and FreePBX individually.

Thanks for your answer.

You say that AsteriskNOW can only be installed on a bare machine, but I did succeed in installing it thanks to this page : https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/ ... k+Packages

So did I install something different of AsteriskNOW ?

That's not AsteriskNOW. That is Asterisk and Dahdi.

AsteriskNOW includes FreePBX; it is CentOS + Asterisk + Dahdi + FreePBX.

For support relating to configuring FreePBX, however installed, and installing it by any other means than AsteriskNOW (onto a bare machine), you want http://community.freepbx.org/

Asterisk is supported in the Asterisk Support forum, here. It is normally expected that dahdi issues will be supported by the relevant hardware supplier. With a modern version of Asterisk, you probably don't need dahdi on a remote server, as you probably have no telephony hardware.

It can be confusing then, the package name I installed is asterisknow-version-3.0.1-2_centos6.noarch.rpm ...

Thank you anyway :)

I imagine that is because the repository was originally intended for updating AsterisNOW installations. Historically, most people installing on an existing system would build from source.

Yeah, I first tried this way (building from source), but had no luck on achieved it. And then I discovered this method which is much more simpler !
