i get this:
[email protected]:/usr/src/freepbx# ./start_asterisk start

./start_asterisk: line 45: /usr/sbin/safe_asterisk: No such file or directory
Asterisk Started

and this:
[email protected]:/usr/src/freepbx# ./install -n
Assuming you are Database Root
Checking if SELinux is enabled…Its not (good)!
Reading /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf…Done
Checking if Asterisk is running and we can talk to it as the ‘asterisk’ user…Error!
Error communicating with Asterisk. Ensure that Asterisk is properly installed and running as the asterisk user
Asterisk does not appear to be running
Try starting Asterisk with the ‘./start_asterisk start’ command in this directory

please please help me :frowning:

I think you are missing some file already such as start_asterisk file. Can you try copy the file to the dire?

Doing a custom asterisk and FreePBX install on an unsupported platform with no Linux experience is deep magic. I’ve been doing this for years, and it’s still a daunting proposition. You might want to consider lowering your sights a little and maybe implement the Distro version on more common hardware.

The fact that you don’t even know how to use a copy command from the Linux prompt means that the rest of the even more complicated stuff might be out of your reach right now.


You may want to use something like which does the heavy lifting


Hi my friend and thanks for the help
I just wanted to run 3cx on my orangepi pc but after thousands of tries I figured out that 3cx ( famous pbx client and server app) only runs on x64 bit devices. I tried to run alternative app on my orangepi so i found this freepbx runs on 32bit devices.
I really executed all commands according to the guide but it came with no success.
I have a VOIP account that only runs on my IP so i need to install a forwarding application on my orangepi so i can use my VOIP on my cellphone and with any IP. I really need help with this.
IS there any thing i can do with this orangepi ?? Where can i obtain Distro version ? Any alternative ? any suggestion ??
that would be greatfull
best of king regards
