Call function to signal Asterisk backend for phone call

I’m new to Asterisk, so pardon my ignorance (if this is a stupid question). I’m developing a web-app in PHP. My goal is to create a form that contains a field such as ‘phone_number’ and when the form is submitted…this triggers my backend to place a phone call to this user’s phone number for confirmation.

Will Asterisk do what I need?


Yes Asterisk will do this.
The scripts to do it are “out there” in the wild.


Sure, see … o-dial+out for an introduction.
