I have recently installed a FreePBX distro. I expressed some concerns about the lack of updates and was advised to come here (to asterisk) as the FreePBX distro is viewed as a telephony appliance and not as a system as I understand that word.
My inclination is to start with a minimal install of CentOS-6.4 and simply install asterisk and freepbx as rpms from packages.asterisk.org/centos/6/c … 6_64/RPMS/? Is that possible? Will it work? Doest it makes sense? What are the down-sides to doing that as opposed to using a distro like Asterisk_Now or FreePBX?
