Hello World! Soon to be obvious I’m a newbie to both Linux and Asterisk. This seemed like a perfect project to get me up to speed in the linux world along with some needed PBX experience.
So the confusing part I’m having is startup options.
My current install of asterisk is running on the latest CentOS 5.4. I have installed asterisk via Yum…it starts and runs fine…I was able to get it to automatically start at bootup using the script in the init.d folder…but according to the book “Asterisk–The Future of Telephony” the prefered startup method is to use the safe_asterisk script…but it doesn’ tell me(unless it’s in some other chapter) how to get linux(CentOS) to launch this script at boot time.
So, using CentOS disto…where the heck to I tell it to launch this script?
Using Putty to SSH into the machine…once I get it running usign safe_asterisk…how the heck to I change to the terminal running asterisk(someone mentioned hitting ALT-F9 or something…but in putty it just blasts some [[[[^ style stuff.
