Has anyone Asterisk installed on their server?


Feb 11, 2009
CPanel team installed Teamspeak3 for me through the CPGS and I would like to try Asterisk, but it's not supported by the CPanel team. Anyone has got it installed on their server? Any suggestion about installing it?

It will be a pain to have asterisk on a cpanel box.

Asterisk 1.2 require us to run the web server process as the same user as asterisk, and it's much easier to run apache as asterisk than the other way around.

I guess one could take the time to install it independently and make asterisk run as nobody, but there will be other implications regarding virtualhosts, php config, etc that could mess things up.

If you really need to have asterisk, the best thing would be to have a dedicated box for it.

If you still like to try this out you can check this out:
