Installing FreePBX 16 on Debian 10.9 Asterisk 16 READ FIRST
Manual installations of FreePBX is considered an EXPERTS ONLY exercise. This method of installation is enough to get CORE functionality of FreePBX. Non-commercial modules may not function as expected or detailed in the Wiki’s. Certain modules and features may require additional software to be installed and configured on the server.
**** COMMERCIAL MODULES CANNOT BE INSTALLED ON THIS OS ****
Installing FreePBX 16 on Debian 10.9 For Asterisk 16 you must enable app_macro in make menuselect
Initial System Setup
When installing the machine, at package selection make sure you pick – at least – ‘web server’ and ‘SSH server’. You can also turn off ‘Debian desktop environment’.
Log in as, or switch to, the Root User
Please note: THIS IS IMPORTANT! You must run the entire process as root. Attempting to use ‘sudo’ later on will not work. Please don’t ignore this. You must run this entire installer as the root user. If will be helpful to enable ssh logins as root. To do so, you need to change the line ‘PermitRootLogin without-password’ to ‘PermitRootLogin yes’ in /etc/ssh/sshd_config. You can do this with the following commands.
If you don’t have any physical PSTN hardware attached to this machine, you don’t need to install DAHDI.(For example, a T1 or E1 card, or a USB device). Most smaller setups will not have DAHDI hardware, and this step can be safely skipped.
Edit /etc/odbcinst.ini and add the following. Note that this command assumes you are installing to a new machine, and that the file is empty. If this is not a freshly installed machine, please manually verify the contents of the file, rather than just copying and pasting the lines below. The ‘EOF’ does no go in the file, it simply signals to the ‘cat’ command that you have finished pasting.
cat<<EOF > /etc/odbcinst.ini
Description = ODBC forMySQL (MariaDB)
Driver = /usr/local/lib/libmaodbc.so
FileUsage = 1
You may need to verify these paths, if you’re not on a x86_64 machine. You can use the command `find / -name libmyodbc.so` to verify the location
Edit or create /etc/odbc.ini and add the following section. Note that, again, this command assumes you are installing to a new machine, and the file is empty. Please manually verify the contents of the files if this is not the case.
cat<<EOF > /etc/odbc.ini
Description = MySQL connection to 'asteriskcdrdb'database
