How to Install Asterisk-GUI


After I try to install asterisk on my previous writings, it seems so hard to configure with CLI. However i’m just a newbie…remember that. So, I’m trying to find an easy way to configure using ‘Asterisk-gui’. actually there are many third-party applications developed for asterisk, such as pbxware, asterisk now, freepbx, briker, etc. asterisk-gui is a web interface, it’s just like you have installing a trixbox on your own.

Here is step by step installation:
1. Go to your installation directory (for example: /usr/src), download the latest version:
[root@gembul ~]# cd /usr/src/
[root@gembul src]# svn checkout http://svn.digium.com/svn/asterisk-gui/trunk asterisk-gui

this is will create directory named asterisk-gui

2. Enter asterisk-gui directory, compile and install:
[root@gembul asterisk-gui]# ./configure
checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking for uname... /bin/uname
checking for gcc... gcc
##################################### skipped #####################################
configure: Package configured for:
configure: OS type : linux-gnu
configure: Host CPU : x86_64

[root@gembul asterisk-gui]# make && make install
##################################### skipped #####################################

+---- Asterisk GUI Installation Complete ---+
+ +
+ YOU MUST READ THE SECURITY DOCUMENT +
+ +
+ Asterisk-GUI has successfully been +
+ installed. +
+ +
+-------------------------------------------+
+ +
+ BEFORE THE GUI WILL WORK +
+ +
+ Before the GUI will run, you must perform +
+ some modifications to the Asterisk +
+ configuration files in accordance with +
+ the README file. When done, you can +
+ check your changes by doing: +
+ +
+ make checkconfig +
+ +
+-------------------------------------------+

3. Configure general parameters, I suggest to backup your default configuration first. and then modify manager.conf http.conf files:
[root@gembul asterisk]# cp -r /etc/asterisk /etc/asterisk.backup
[root@gembul asterisk]# vi /etc/asterisk/manager.conf

[general]
enabled = yes
webenabled = yes
port = 5038
bindaddr = 0.0.0.0

[gembuls]
secret = your_password
permit=0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0
read = system,call,log,verbose,agent,user,config,dtmf,reporting,cdr,dialplan
write = system,call,agent,user,config,command,reporting,originate

[root@gembul asterisk]# vi /etc/asterisk/http.conf
[general]
enabled = yes
bindaddr = 0.0.0.0
bindport = 8088
prefix = gui
enablestatic = yes

4. Reload/restart your asterisk
[root@gembul asterisk]# asterisk -r
