I am new to Asterisk (Also new to any PBX or telephony) but fairly experienced in Linux.
I have managed to Install Asterisk 1.8 and Asterisk GUI in my Centos 6 box using yum command. I can login in Asterisk GUI.
Problem is, I can’t get documentation that can help me understand Asterisk using GUI. All docs/books I can find concentrate in configuration files. Most articles/tutorials are for old versions of Asterisk and I have no idea if they are still relevant.
For someone totally new with Asterisk what do you recommend?
Should I take a book and start getting comfortable with configuration files directly or there is some way to learn Asterisk GUI.
My aim is not to become expert in Asterisk, I only want to configure some basic stuff like SIP incoming/outgoing to around 15 users quickly.
