Installation Question 2

Hi There

How would I install Asterisk on a Linux VPS? I’m new to Asterisk and don’t have that much knowledge of SSH Access to my server.

Any help would be much appreciated

Many thanks


Is this VPS a hosted server?
Do you have root access to that server? if not, you wont be able to install asterisk.

Hi Npereira

I have full root access

Many thanks


If you have access to the CD, then burn the asteriskNow or Trixbox CE to a CD, and install from there.

Log in as root and you should be able to just use a series of apt-get or yum commands depending on what version of Linux your VPS is running.

My server is remote and I’m running debian. Any ideas on what I need to do? I’m not familiar with commands though

…you don’t have any experience with the command line?

No I don’t have any experience of the command line

Many thanks

I’m not going to give you a step-by-step guide on how to install Asterisk on a Debian system. Perhaps you can use Google to find such instructions. I will tell you that the installation is fairly command-line heavy, so you might want to familiarize yourself with it before you attempt a moderately complex installation such as Asterisk.
