Installing FreePBX 14 on centos 7

i try to install FreePBX 14 on Centos 7 VPS.
I read this:
All is ok until:
“Set Asterisk ownership permissions.”
If i set:
chown asterisk. /var/run/asterisk
i have:
chown: invalid user: ‘asterisk’
can you help me?

Did you miss

adduser asterisk -m -c "Asterisk User"

Perhaps you forgot this step near the top of the guide:

Add the Asterisk User

adduser asterisk -m -c "Asterisk User”

Curious. Why not installing the distro?

i not use ISO because i can’t upload in VPS
i re-install all and i have add asterisk user correctly.
but i have another error:

[[email protected] 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 appears to be running as asterisk
Try starting Asterisk with the ‘./start_asterisk start’ command in this directory


If you are interested in getting the distro and commercial modules, then you might be able to install the ISO on a virtual machine (like virtualbox) on your personal computer then upload the VM to the VPS. Below is an example on how this can be done in Google Cloud Platform
