Initial System Setup
In /etc/sysconfig/selinux , change the following lines:
reboot, and verify the selinux status by running 'sestatus'. It should say:
Update Your System
Install Additional Required Dependencies
Install Legacy Pear requirements
Firewalld Basic Configuration
You must open port 80 so that you can access the administration interface
Enable and Start MariaDB
You must have MariaDB running for freepbx to operate normally. It must start automatically, and be running continuously.
Now that our MariaDB database is running, we want to run a simple security script that will remove some dangerous defaults and lock down access to our database system a little bit
The prompt will ask you for your current root password. Since you just installed MySQL, you most likely won’t have one, so leave it blank by pressing enter. Then the prompt will ask you if you want to set a root password. Do not set a root password. We secure the database automatically, as part of the install script. Apart from that you can chose yes for the rest. This will remove some sample users and databases, disable remote root logins, and load these new rules so that MySQL immediately respects the changes we have made.
Enable and Start Apache
FreePBX uses the Apache web server, so this must be started and running.
Install Dependencies for Google Voice (if required)
Add the Asterisk User
Install and Configure Asterisk
Download Asterisk source files.
Compile and install DAHDI
Compile and install pjproject
Compile and Install jansson
Compile and install Asterisk
You will be prompted at the point to pick which modules to build. Most of them will already be enabled, but if you want to have MP3 support (eg, for Music on Hold), you need to manually turn on 'format_mp3' on the first page.
After selecting 'Save & Exit' you can then continue
Install Asterisk Soundfiles.
The 'make install' above installs a standard low-quality base sound file by default. This is suitable if you are on a small, underpowered system (such as a Rasberry Pi), but on a larger system you should install higher quality soundfiles. Note that this installs the (8khz) 'wav' soundfiles and G722 (High Definition 'Wideband') audio.
Set Asterisk ownership permissions.
Install and Configure FreePBX
A few small modifications to Apache.
Download and install FreePBX.
You can now start using FreePBX. Open up your web browser and connect to the IP address or hostname of your new FreePBX server. You will see the Admin setup page, which is where you set your 'admin' account password, and configure an email address to receive update notifications.
We hope you enjoy using FreePBX 13!
