FusionPBX is an amazing WEB frontend for FreeSWITCH. But as any non-proprietary project (I mean OpenSource licenced), installation is not as easy as everyone would wish. So, here I explain one of the many methods available to install it.

This installation by default will install FusionPBX with the following capabilities:

  • Multi-tenant enabled
  • MySQL/MariaDB enabled for the Profiles registrations
  • MySQL/MariaDB enabled for the FreeSWITCH core
  • MySQL/MariaDB enable for the FusionPBX
  • FusionPBX XML Handler enabled
  • LCR and Billing for FusionPBX
  • FreeSWITCH 1.10.1 1.6 (latest available when writing this post)
  • Database index optimized

This way, if you want to do later advanced configuration such as load balancing or HA, you don't need to do a big thing in the FreeSWITCH or FusionPBX end.

Everyone knows that CentOS only takes care of some specific core packages. All others, if you want to continue using RPM's, must be used from alternative Repositories. There are many alternatives:

  • EPEL: you will find here many useful packages. Packages get updates for critical bugs.
  • Remi: you will find here backports for the most useful packages. 
  • OKay: you will find here some specific packages for servers, audio, and video.

I especially do contributions to the OKay repository. So, if you want to use OKay follow these steps:

  • Install the EPEL repository, you may try typing yum install epel-release. I think at least Centos 7 and 8 have it out of the box.
  • Install the okay-release RPM. Type:
    • Centos 6 on 32 bits: rpm -ivh http://repo.okay.com.mx/centos/6/i386/release/okay-release-1-3.el6.noarch.rpm​?
    • Centos 6 on 64 bits: rpm -ivh http://repo.okay.com.mx/centos/6/x86_64/release/okay-release-1-3.el6.noarch.rpm?
    • Centos 7 on 64 bits: rpm -ivh http://repo.okay.com.mx/centos/7/x86_64/release/okay-release-1-3.el7.noarch.rpm?
    • Centos 8 on 64 bits: rpm -ivh http://repo.okay.com.mx/centos/8/x86_64/release/okay-release-1-3.el8.noarch.rpm?

I will post later as I publish some updates or packages.

Soon I will stop updating the CentOS 6 repository.

I have published before the FreeSWITCH 1.10.1 RPM's for CentOS 6 and 7. Now that CentOS 8 is published it is its turn.

I am very proud to share with you all the FreeSWITCH 1.10.1 RPM's for CentOS 8. It was not easy, it took me two weeks and recompile more than 500 SRPMS to make it possible.
