Last week I put up an install guide for Asterisk 11 on CentOS 6. Asterisk 11 is the latest LTS release of Asterisk with many great new features and long term support! To follow up on the previous tutorial, I’ve put together a step by step guide for Ubuntu 12.4. Although most of the steps are similar there are a few differences. This tutorial will work for Ubuntu, Debian and Debian-based distributions. View the CentOS guide for Redhat-based distributions. Watch the video for a screencast of my terminal session to see the install live with an explanation of each step. Below you’ll find the commands are printed for you to copy and paste.
For this install I am using Asterisk 11.0.1 and will be compiling from source on Ubuntu 12.4.1.
Before you begin the install process you will want to be sure that your server OS is up to date. When the update completes the server will reboot.
