Asterisk Tutorial 03-Asterisk Start Stop Scripts

Introducing Asterisk Phone Systems: Asterisk Start Stop Scripts

Welcome to Introducing Asterisk from the VoIP Guys. In today’s episode we cover Asterisk phone system Start Stop Scripts, explaining why we do not want the Asterisk software to run as the root user as well as why it is important to have a good clean and professional setup for your Asterisk PBX.

This all means we will be showing you how to create an Asterisk start-up script, setup a new Asterisk user as well as assigning the user with access rights. We also explain what Asterisk privilege is and what the “live_dangerously” parameter is and what it is for. As if that wasn’t enough we also sho you how to change this parameter within your active asterisk service.

In our Introducing Asterisk series, we are using an ubuntu linux operating system as a virtual machine in which to install our Asterisk PBX, so those of you looking for ubuntu asterisk start-up scripts - look no further.

Coming up next in the VoIP guys Asterisk series, we will be taking a look at Asterisk SIP peers and adding SIP devices to our demo Asterisk phone system.
