Installation of asterisk 11 on centos 6

Recently i have installed asterisk 11 on centos 6 as per the instruction from Digium blog.  The instruction i have followed to install is :-

For this install I am using Asterisk 11.2.1 and will be compiling from source on CentOS 6.3. This tutorial should also work on Fedora and RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) systems with little or no modification.

First, you will want to be sure that your server OS is up to date.

yum update -y

Disable SELinux by changing “enforcing” to “disabled” in /etc/selinux/config. Use a text editor or copy and paste this command.
sedi s/SELINUX=enforcing/SELINUX=disabled/g /etc/selinux/config

After you update and disable SELinux, you’ll need to reboot.


Next, you will want to resolve basic dependencies. (More information on Asterisk dependencies.)

yum install -y make wget openssl-devel ncurses-devel newt-devel libxml2-devel kernel-devel gcc gcc-c++ sqlite-devel

Change into the /usr/src/ directory to store your source code.

cd /usr/src/

Download the source tarballs. These commands will get the current release of DAHDI 2.6, libpri 1.4 and Asterisk 11.


Extract the files from the tarballs.

tar zxvf dahdi-linux-complete*
tar zxvf libpri*
tar zxvf asterisk*

For the next set of commands it is important to follow the proper order: DAHDI first, then libpri, then Asterisk.

Install DAHDI.

cd /usr/src/dahdilinux-complete*
make && make install && make config

Install libpri.

cd /usr/src/libpri*
make && make install

Change to the Asterisk directory.

cd /usr/src/asterisk*

In the next step, running the “configure” script will vary depending on whether your system is 32-bit or 64-bit. (Watch the video for more details.) When the menuselect command runs, select your options, then choose “Save and Exit” and the install will continue.

Use this command if you are installing Asterisk on 32bit CentOS.

./configure && make menuselect && make && make install

Use this command if you are installing Asterisk on 64bit CentOS.

./configure –libdir=/usr/lib64 && make menuselect && make && make install

Optional: If you ran into errors you will want to clean the install directory before recompiling.

make clean && make distclean

Once you have an error-free install, copy the sample files from the configs subdirectory into /etc/asterisk.

make samples

Then add the Asterisk start script to the /etc/init.d/ directory

make config

Start DAHDI.

servicedahdi start

Start Asterisk.

service asterisk start

Connect to the Asterisk CLI.


And now you have Asterisk 11 running on CentOS 6
