Unable to install FreePBX - help!


I was using the old RasPBX 2 and looking for an updated version I am trying to install FreePBX 13 Distro 32 bit https://www.freepbx.org/downloads/ in my Beaglebone Black (BeagleBone Black rev 000C S/N 1914BBBK0492 running BoneScript 0.2.4). Flashing image with Win32DiskImager goes well. I can access the install through SSH, but when trying to access the FreePBX admin webpage, it will not display, instead redirecting me to a Beaglebone web page.

Please, any advice is welcome! :slight_smile:

I’m no expert but sounds like you need to disable or change the port for the beaglebone web page on the device you are trying to use. That would allow you to access the Freepbx page. You probably already know this, and if so sorry I don’t have any experience with that Device.

Thank you. I did not get what you mean, I should change the port through SSH?

what I meant was to change the port of beaglebone config, I’m sure it has a configuration to it, just not familiar with it. Open the web page for it, and see if you can find a settings or config, then change it to use a different port other than 80. or you can you can change the port FreePBX uses, but that may be just as irritating.
if you want to change the FreePBX port from 80 to something else…

nano /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

Change Listen to Listen (put whatever you want in place of xxxx)

thank you Chase.

that fix it for you?

Well, I do not know. I did the calculations and I would need to purchase a serial to USB cable to check what is going on on during boot + new microSSD and time involved (=cost), then I decided to purchase a NUC, which will give me also more performance for FreePBX.

The distro is for x86 NOT ARM.

Hello jfinstrom, thank you. The NUC is a Intel Celeron N3050 1,6 Ghz 4GB RAM x86. :slight_smile:

You said you are installing on a BeagleBone Black…

Processor: AM335x 1GHz ARM® Cortex-A8
4GB 8-bit eMMC on-board flash storage
3D graphics accelerator
NEON floating-point accelerator
2x PRU 32-bit microcontrollers

I didn’t see that you switched to the nuc…


Hello jfinstrom, yes, I am searching the most economic NUC that will provide me the capabilities to run FreePBX without issues.
