Installing the Digium Asterisk GUI

Digium Asterisk GUI – web-management interface Asterisk.

Today I’ll sculpt it to Asterisk 11 on Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS.
Switch directly to the root user:

sudo -i

Download it:

apt-get install subversion
mkdir -p ~/asterisk-gui
cd ~/asterisk-gui
svn checkout http://svn.digium.com/svn/asterisk-gui/branches/2.0/

We compile and install:

cd 2.0
./configure
make
make install

Just in case, we’ll make a copy of the Asterisk configuration files:

cp -r /etc/asterisk /etc/asterisk.original

Open the configuration file manager.conf for example in the editor nano (Ctrl+X to exit the editor, y/n to save or cancel changes):

nano /etc/asterisk/manager.conf

The main parameters that must be configured in the manager.conf configuration file are:

[general]
enabled = yes
webenabled = yes
bindaddr = 0.0.0.0
[USERNAME]
secret = PASSWORD
read = system,call,log,verbose,command,agent,user,config
write = system,call,log,verbose,command,agent,user,config

At the very end of the file, replace the symbol # with; otherwise you can not enter under the login and password specified above.

Now edit http.conf:

nano /etc/asterisk/http.conf

In it we will specify the following parameters of the web server:

enabled=yes
enablestatic=yes
bindaddr=0.0.0.0
prefix=asterisk

Let’s check the settings:

make checkconfig

Delete the empty folder and specify a link to the real one with the files of the web server:

rmdir /usr/share/asterisk/static-http/
ln -s /var/lib/asterisk/static-http/ /usr/share/asterisk/

Restarting Asterisk:

/etc/init.d/asterisk restart

Now Digium Asterisk GUI should open by link http://192.168.56.102:8088/asterisk/static/config/index.html, where 192.168.56.102 this is the IP or Server domain with Asterisk.

To log in, we’ll specify the username and password you wrote earlier in the manager.conf file

Done.
