CentOS 5.2 and Asterisk 1.6.x installation This is a work in progress - copied from my CentOS 5 and Asterisk 1.4.

x installation page Base Install of Asterisk on an i386 CentOS/RHEL box:

More as an aide memoir for us than anything else, but if somebody does find it useful, then that's good too! For reasons detailed elsewhere, you're best not using a GUI, so do the installation from the command line ('linux-text' at the GRUB prompt). When you select the packages, the only one you need is 'server'. Disk partitioning, networking etc. is all entirely up to you! At your first login, you'll be presented with a simple administration screen. Disable SELinux and (for now) the firewall.

Dependencies
The first thing to do is to get your box up to date. Try: yum -y upgrade and then reboot. Otherwise, to update all the installed packages, at the shell, run yum -y update When you've done either of the above, reboot the machine when it's finished (as it'll install a new kernel) and then run yum -y update again and repeat until there are no more updates.

Quick method:
Do you trust me? If so, the line below will install all the dependencies you need (and then some!) - cut and paste from here if you're happy to install things you may or may not need. yum -y install gcc gcc-c++ kernel-devel bison \ openssl openssl-devel perl perl-Net-SSLeay perl-Crypt-SSLeay \ libtermcap-devel ncurses-devel doxygen curl-devel newt-devel \ mlocate lynx tar wget nmap bzip2 mod_ssl crontabs vixie-cron \ speex speex-devel unixODBC unixODBC-devel libtool-ltdl \ libtool-ltdl-devel mysql-connector-odbc mysql mysql-devel \ mysql-server php-mysql php-mbstring php-mcrypt flex screen

Individual application specific dependencies


Asterisk We've got to be able to compile it! yum -y install gcc gcc-c++ Note that you may need to use the following if you are running a Xen enabled kernel: yum -y install kernel-xen-devel If you want the 'zttool' application, you'll need to: yum -y install newt-devel Other things you may find useful (if they're not already installed): yum -y install mlocate lynx tar wget nmap bzip2 mod_ssl crontabs vixie-cron

Speex (optional) Speex support depends on 'speex_preprocess_ctl' which is not available in the standard Speex packages. It may be possible to compile an older version of Speex if required. ODBC stuff (optional) Note that if you have already installed Asterisk, you will need to run 'configure', 'make' and 'make install' to detect ODBC and compile it in. yum -y install unixODBC unixODBC-devel libtool-ltdl libtool-ltdl-devel

MySQL ODBC interface/connector (optional, but required if using ODBC and MySQL) yum -y install mysql-connector-odbc And then edit the file '/etc/odbcinst.ini' (or '/usr/local/odbcinst.ini') and replace 'Driver = /usr/lib/libmyodbc.so' with 'Driver = /usr/lib/libmyodbc3.so' MySQL (optional) yum -y install mysql mysql-devel mysql-server chkconfig mysqld on service mysqld start

PHPMyAdmin (optional) Download the latest version from http://www.phpmyadmin.net/, unzip/unbzip/untar into /var/www/htdocs/phpmyadmin (for the time being). Make sure Apache starts on boot. yum -y install php-mysql php-mbstring php-mcrypt chkconfig httpd on service httpd start Surf to https://i.p.address/phpmyadmin and check it works. Webmin (optional) If SSL is required, ensure that the correct bits are installed yum -y install openssl openssl-devel perl perl-Net-SSLeay perl-Crypt-SSLeay Download the latest version of the RPM from http://www.webmin.com/ rpm -i webmin-VERSION chkconfig webmin on service webmin start Surf to https://i.p.address:10000 and check it works.

Download and install Asterisk and components


Download
Download the latest asterisk version /usr/src/asterisk and untar the files as follows: mkdir -p /usr/src/asterisk cd /usr/src/asterisk wget http://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/telephony/asterisk/asterisk-1.6.1-current.tar.gz

wget http://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/telephony/asterisk/asterisk-addons-1.6.1current.tar.gz wget http://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/telephony/dahdi-linux-complete/dahdi-linuxcomplete-current.tar.gz wget http://downloads.digium.com/pub/libpri/libpri-1.4-current.tar.gz tar -zxf dahdi-linux-complete-current.tar.gz tar -zxf asterisk-1.6.1-current.tar.gz tar -zxf libpri-1.4-current.tar.gz tar -zxf asterisk-addons-1.6.1-current.tar.gz You'll end up with four tar files and four directories in the directory '/usr/src/asterisk'.

Libpri (optional)
If you are using E1 cards you need to install LIBPRI. If you do want to use LIBPRI, make sure you compile and install it before you compile Asterisk. Replace 'VERSION' with the correct details. cd /usr/src/asterisk/libpri-VERSION make clean make make install

DAHDI
You're pretty much going to need DAHDI. If not for any hardware then for the dummy timer anyway. Note that the stock CentOS kernels come with a 1000HZ timer and so don't need recompiling (phew!). Replace 'VERSION' with the correct details. cd /usr/src/asterisk/dahdi-linux-complete-VERSION make all make install make config Edit /etc/dahdi/modules, /etc/dahdi/system.conf and /etc/asterisk/chan_dahdi.conf for your site. Set DAHDI to start automatically and then start it. chkconfig dahdi on service dahdi start

Asterisk
cd /usr/src/asterisk/asterisk-VERSION make clean ./configure Choose which options to install (audio files, voicemail storage, codecs etc.) make menuselect make make install

Install sample files in /etc/asterisk, install docs/manpages and set to start on boot. make samples make progdocs make config chkconfig asterisk on Check Asterisk starts properly: asterisk -vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvc stop now If not, you've probably not been following these instructions carefully! Assuming it does start properly, you probably want to start it in the background: service asterisk start

Asterisk-addons
cd /usr/src/asterisk/asterisk-addons-VERSION make clean ./configure make menuselect Choose what you do and don't want. Unless you really need oh323, deselect it as it can be the cause of compilation woes. make make install Install sample files in /etc/asterisk make samples Edit /etc/asterisk/cdr_mysql.conf and add 'loguniqueid=yes' to the global section.

mISDN drivers for Digium B410P (optional)


Removed - have yet to test installation with DAHDI

Configure MySQL (optional)


The information below shows table definitions for all of the tables Asterisk can use with MySQL or ODBC.

Notes

The UniqueID field in the CDR table is not necessarily unique! Due to the very very dodgy way Asterisk handles unique IDs, if you set the field to be the primary key (as advised elsewhere), you will lose data.

SQL
Note that the SIP 'qualify' field has a default value set to 'yes'. This is for two reasons. Firstly, I wrote these notes because it's how I use and want to use Asterisk. Secondly, whether qualification is enabled or not in realtime is controlled by the 'rtcachefriends' setting in sip.conf - if it's 'no', then whether 'qualify' is 'yes' or 'no' in the database is irrelevant. It makes sense therefore to enable it in the database and then turn it on or off with the 'rtcachefriends' setting.
