Add users

Postby urvthme » Mon Sep 15, 2008 11:33 pm

Hi all,

I am new to asterisk and do not know how to create users in asterisk. I followed the guide and added 2 users in the sip.conf. I have to add some 50 users and the sip.conf file does not look like the right place to hold so many users. Also, is there a database (mysql) needed?

Presently with the 2 or 3 users added in the sip.conf file, I am able to register but not able to call. Asterisk is sending back 404 User not found.

How to solve this?

Thanks in advance,

after you insert new sip accounts into sip.conf you need to reload sip, on the CLI you need to type:
Code: Select all
*CLI> sip reload

you can store all the accounts as well into a database, you need to install the asterisk addons, a good place to start is:

on our website we have also some tutorials how to install Asterisk with the addon package:

all the best,

To be able to call you will need:

    Users confined in sip.conf
    Dial plans in sip.conf
    extensions for users confined in extensions.conf

you might want to try that mysql though.

also a good database might be LDAP. (i use it currently and i got it working quite nicely)
