A new contribs appeared quietly on http://sme.firewall-services.com/spip.php?article63 (in french).

If you don't need multi-tenants functionnalities and are operating in Americas this is a very interesting application. You either use seltintra or freepbx BUT NOT BOTH!

Here's a summary of it:

Add ATRPMS repo from this method (based on Cactus recommandation):
http://wiki.contribs.org/ATrpms

Download files:
Code: [Select]
mkdir -p rpms/freepbx
cd rpms/freepbx
wget http://sme.firewall-services.com/downloads/freepbx/rpms/smeserver-freepbx-0.1-8.el4.sme.noarch.rpm
wget http://sme.firewall-services.com/downloads/freepbx/rpms/freepbx-src-2.5.1-0.el4.sme.noarch.rpm

Install:
Code: [Select]
yum --enablerepo=atrpms localinstall ./*freepbx*.rpm
signal-event freepbx-update

Then use server-manager -> Telephony to manage the pbx.

Many thanks to Daniel for this great project!

Add ATRPMS repo:
Code: [Select]
db yum_repositories set atrpms repository BaseURL http://dl.atrpms.net/el4-i386/atrpms/stable EnableGroups yes Name 'ATrpms' Visible yes status disabled GPGCheck yes GPGKey http://ATrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms
expand-template /etc/yum.conf
I seriously suggest you install ATrpms with this command instead of the command listed above. The command given here misses excludes and might update packages from the core you do not want to upgrade.

Addendum: please post this in the wiki as well in the Howto Category.

Hi.

I haven't announced it sooner because I wanted to test several installs before. But now I use it on production servers and it's working great.

I'll make a wiki page ASAP.

Hi

Just installed FreePBX on to a virtual amchine to try. I currently use SAIL and thought I would try FreePBX.

My problem is that after intstall and reboot, the system doesn't start I get

Quote
Bad Gateway
The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
from the server manager panel after clicking on "FreePBX" and "Flash Panel Operator"

Asterisk is running and I can't locate and english doc's

Can someone point my in the right direction please?

To get this kind of basic information about ip telephony, a good starting point is http://www.voip-info.org/wiki/

Since you are asking this kind of questions, I would suggest to test and learn before jumping into a real project. Only my opinion tho...

I'll make a wiki page ASAP.

Installed since 3 months and works like a charm! (sme7.4 and freephonie)
Freepbx prompt you by mail when there is some modules or core updates. very usefull and... updates works.

Maybe one thing you can add is a how to install the localized langage speechs in freepbx. (prompts)

thanks
david

I've added a basic wiki page http://wiki.contribs.org/FreePBX

It's not complete yet. I'll try to add informations on how-to add additional prompts (at least french prompts) and how to configure some hardware cards ASAP.

Do not hesitate to contribute to the wiki page if you have the time.

Cheers

I think there was some special action needed to install speex. Maybe you should search that way. Just a guess.

Hi. FreePBX uses a special instance of apache runing under asterisk account. This instance is accessible with ProxyPass, just like the server-manager. That means that if you get
Code: [Select]
Bad Gateway
The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
then there's something wrong with this instance of apache. You should check it's runing:
Code: [Select]
expand-template /etc/httpd/fpbx-conf/httpd.conf
httpd -f /etc/httpd/fpbx-conf/httpd.conf -t
You should see a message like
Code: [Select]
Syntax OK
If it's the case, then, run
Code: [Select]
sv t /service/httpd-fpbx
You can also look at the logs to see what's going on:
Code: [Select]
tailf /var/log/httpd/fpbx_error_log
C'est la fin du monde !!! :lol:
