  1. Download and unzip the source
  2. cd /var/www/html
    wget http://voxel.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/astercc/astercc-0.09beta.zip
    unzip astercc-0.09beta.zip
    mv astercc-0.09beta astercc

  3. Create the directories and move astercc daemon scripts:
  4. mkdir -p /opt/asterisk/scripts/astercc/
    mv /var/www/html/astercc/daemons/* /opt/asterisk/scripts/astercc/
    chmod +x /opt/asterisk/scripts/astercc/astercc
    chmod +x /opt/asterisk/scripts/astercc/asterrc
    chmod +x /opt/asterisk/scripts/astercc/asterccd

  5. Create the MySQL database and table, asterCC need mysql 4.1 or above
  6. mysqladmin -uyourmysqluser -pyourmysqlpasswd create astercc
    mysql -uyourmysqluser -pyourmysqlpasswd astercc <sql/astercc.sql

    Note: here we create the database named astercc, you could use whatever db name you want use your configration to replace yourmysqluser and yourmysqlpasswd

  7. Update /etc/asterisk/manager.conf to enable Manager connections
  8. Note: asterisk and astercc could be on different server

    Add something like this to the manager.conf file:

    [general] enabled = yes
    port = 5038
    bindaddr =
    ;displayconnects = yes

    ;the following line could be changed by yourself
    [eventsdaemon] secret = myeventsdaemon
    read = system,call,log,verbose,command,agent,user
    write = system,call,log,verbose,command,agent,user
    ; only allow local access, if you want to run astercrm on another server
    ; use your astercrm ip to replace or add a new line

  9. Modify /var/www/html/astercc/astercc.conf.php and /opt/asterisk/scripts/astercc/astercc.conf to fit your configration
  10. Start astercc daemons
  11. /opt/asterisk/scripts/astercc/asterccd start
    Note: If your astercc scripts in other directory,
    you need to modify script path in CONFIGURATION SECTION of asterccd and asterccdaemon
    to fit your script path (modify path of astercc,asterrc and asterccdaemon in asterccd;
    modify path of asterccd and monitor log in asterccdaemon).

    Start astercc daemons when system startup:
    Note: This option can only fit to redhat-release system.
    If you want astercc daemons to start automatically when you boot your
    machine, you need to :

    cp /opt/asterisk/scripts/astercc/asterccd /etc/rc.d/init.d
    chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/init.d/asterccd
    chkconfig –add asterccd

    Advice: Configure your astercc restart once everyday, it’s not necessary, but it’s good for your astercc operation.
    for example: you want to restart astercc at 0′clock everyday,just do the following line as root.
    crontab -e
    add a line:
    0 0 * * * /etc/rc.d/init.d/asterccd restart
    end of this file, the first ‘0’ figures minutes and the second ‘0’ figures hours.

  12. Set folder access
  13. chmod 777 /var/www/html/astercc/upload

  14. Testing: browse to http://localhost/astercc
  15. browse to http://localhost/astercc

    or http://YOUR-WEB-SERVER-ADDRESS/astercc

    login with admin/admin

  16. Set your first booth
    • go Reseller and add a reseller
    • go Group add a group belong to the reseller
    • go Clid add some clid for this group, then the account in asterisk with the clid would be billing as a user in this group
    • go Account add a account, usertype could be groupadmin and belongs to the group you just added
    • go Rate to Customer and add some rate for the group, if you dont select reseller or group, the rate could be the default rate all all resellers/groups
    • login as groupadmin account, then you should see some box as the attachments.
    • try make a call using the ip phone with the clid, you could see the calling and billing message in the box
