How to – Setup FreePBX 15 & Asterisk 16 on a Raspberry Pi 4
Creating a “Contact Center to Go”
For this setup I used the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B – 8 GB encased in the above casing. I will go over step by step instructions on what I just did to create a little “mini mobile call center to go” with FreePBX 15 and Asterisk 16.
Step 1 – Purchase a Raspberry Pi and micro SD card
Personally I went with Vilros.com for my purchase and was not disappointed.
Step 2 – Download RasPBX
You need to download RasPBX next, I downloaded it from the main source at http://www.raspberry-asterisk.org/downloads/ and then unzipped the file which gave me a raspbx-10-10-2020.img file
Step 3 – Download Win32DiskImager and begin installation
Install Win32DiskImager and then choose the raspbx.img and the drive you have your micro SD card on and click “write”.
Step 4 – Start up your Rasperry Pi & updating it
Once you power on your device and let it start up, you will be prompted for a username and password. The user is “Pi” and the password is “raspberry”. After you login and make sure you have an internet connection, run “raspbx-upgrade” to update everything and check if Asterisk is running correctly.
Step 5 – FreePBX
Lets get started on FreePBX setup now. Go to http://raspbx.ip and click on Admin > Admin Module and check online for updates
You now have a “Contact Center to Go” in your pocket.
