Where to start?

I have just taken a job at a small wisp and one of my “jobs to do” is to make a functional updated backup of an asterisk box that runs the entire office of phones plus a paging service. So. I have a server and a digium te410p t1 card and no Idea where to start learning all of this. Can someone point me in the right direction?

EDIT: The asterisk box that is currently in use is very old. So I don’t think I just just back it up and use it. I want to learn by doing so I really need to just set it up myself and reconfigure it to do what needs to be done.


Start with the book:

It’ll get you going on concepts and terminology.

For reference, use the Wiki:

Have a gander at versions, so you understand what’s available and what’s supported:

Good luck
