Will FreePBX work with CentOS 6.2?

Anyone running FreePBX 2.9/2.10 with CentOS 6.2 in production?

The other distribution has standardized on Centos 6.2, I am sure there are many in a production environment. Digium’s website still states that Digium support is only for Centos 4 or 5.

I know PIAF is using it and Tom says it works well. In the past when I have tried it I always had little issues but its been a month or 2 the last time I tried.

We plan on offering a 6.2 ISO this summer but still perfecting the upgrade path from Centos 5.x to 6.x. It works in the labs but that is as far as I have had time to work on it. No point is having a new system that older versions can not upgrade to.


I am running 5 virtual systems on XenServer with CentOS 6.2 (64 bit)

CentOS 6.2 (64)
FreePBX 2.10
Monast 3.0b4
MPG123 for streaming MOH
ICES 2.0.1 for streaming calls to Icecast

one plus is 6 doesn’t install everything under the sun like previous versions.
absolutely solid, and compared to vm’s on CentOS 5.x it uses much less ram.
on most customer PBX’s with 25-30 extensions and medium call volume 5.8 used 1 gig consistently and 6.2 is using 700MB
The best performance I have yet seen. I have had old timers tell me that its just as fast as analog for dialing now. Its funny cause normally the only time I hear anything is when people complain but I have had a half dozen compliments since going to 6!

I am working on switching all of the rest to 6.2 now :wink:
