Update the Timezone

Configure the system time and update it.
Customize the timezone. Take a look inside /usr/share/zoneinfo/ for all possible values.
rm /etc/localtime
ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Kolkata /etc/localtime
rdate -s nist1-ny.ustiming.org

Setup CPAN and install libraries

yum install perl-CPAN
yum install perl-YAML
perl -MCPAN -e shell ; just press enter for all the questions

You will then go through CPAN setup, just hit ENTER for most prompts except
for the mirrors list, you will want to select at least 4 mirrors
yes for manual configuration
enter for the next 18 prompts
for the “make install” option, it’s a good idea to add UNINST=1
enter for the next 4 prompts
select your continent and country
select a few cpan mirrors
enter for the next 2 prompts
Once you see the cpan> prompt you can begin installing modules.

install CPAN::Meta::Requirements
install CPAN
reload cpan
install YAML
install MD5
install Digest::MD5
install Digest::SHA1
install readline
install Bundle::CPAN
reload cpan
install DBI
force install DBD::mysql
install Net::Telnet
install Time::HiRes
install Net::Server
install Switch
install Mail::Sendmail
install Unicode::Map
install Jcode
install Spreadsheet::WriteExcel
install OLE::Storage_Lite
install Proc::ProcessTable
install IO::Scalar
install Spreadsheet::ParseExcel
install Curses
install Getopt::Long
install Net::Domain
install Term::ReadKey
install Term::ANSIColor
install Spreadsheet::XLSX
install Spreadsheet::Read
install LWP::UserAgent
install HTML::Entities
install HTML::Strip
install HTML::FormatText
install HTML::TreeBuilder
install Time::Local
install MIME::Decoder
install Mail::POP3Client
install Mail::IMAPClient
install Mail::Message
install IO::Socket::SSL
install MIME::Base64
install MIME::QuotedPrint
install Crypt::Eksblowfish::Bcrypt
quit

In the end, I usually run all these commands once again to make sure its all installed. and make sure you get following output for each modul

cpan> install Mail::Message
Mail::Message is up to date (2.115).

cpan> install MIME::QuotedPrint MIME::QuotedPrint is up to date (3.13)

Installing the Asterisk-Perl module

NOTE: Do NOT use the 0.09 or any newer version, they do not work with ViciDial/iConnect.
cd /usr/src
wget http://download.vicidial.com/required-apps/asterisk-perl-0.08.tar.gz
tar -zxf asterisk-perl-0.08.tar.gz

lame
ttyload
iftop
mtop
mytop
htop
sipsak
ploticus

LAME:

LAME is an MP3 encoder used to convert audio files from WAV to MP3. Some prefer GSM usually, but others have standardized on MP3 so you would need this utility to be loaded to use that option.
cd /usr/src
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/lame/lame/3.99/lame-3.99.5.tar.gz
tar -zxf lame-3.99.5.tar.gz

tar -zxf sox-14.4.1.tar.gz
cd sox-14.4.1
./configure
make -s
make install

TTYLOAD:

ttyload is a simple terminal application that shows the processor load in a graphical time-based scrolling graph. I use it to view how loaded the system is and it visualizes load spikes very well.
cd /usr/src
wget http://download.vicidial.com/required-apps/ttyload-0.5.tar.gz
tar -xvzf ttyload-0.5.tar.gz
cd ttyload-0.5
nano ttyload.h

insert this #include directive just above the #define directives, then save and close the ttyload.h file
#include

make
ln -s /usr/src/ttyload-0.5/ttyload /usr/bin/ttyload

IFTOP:

iftop is a good console bandwidth visualization tool that shows you active connections, where they are going to/from and how much of your precious bandwidth they are using.
cd /usr/src
wget http://www.ex-parrot.com/~pdw/iftop/download/iftop-0.17.tar.gz
tar -zxf iftop-0.17.tar.gz
cd iftop-0.17
./configure
make
make install

MTOP:

Mtop is a great utility for real-time monitoring of mysql and the queries that are running in it.
Note: the root mysql password must be blank before installing this
cd /usr/src
wget http://download.vicidial.com/required-apps/mtop-0.6.6.tar.gz
tar -zxf mtop-0.6.6.tar.gz

make install

HTOP:

Htop is an interactive process viewer for Linux
cd /usr/src
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/htop/htop/1.0.2/htop-1.0.2.tar.gz
tar -zxf htop-1.0.2.tar.gz
cd htop-1.0.2
./configure
make
make install

SIPSAK:
sipsak is an optional utility that VICIDIAL/iConnect can use to send messages to an agent’s SIP-based phone(like the Snom 320) to display text on their LCD screen.
cd /usr/src
wget http://download.vicidial.com/required-apps/sipsak-0.9.6-1.tar.gz
tar -zxf sipsak-0.9.6-1.tar.gz
cd sipsak-0.9.6
./configure
make
make install
/usr/local/bin/sipsak –version

PLOTICUS:
Ploticus is a free graph creation package that allows you to create line graphs within PNG files simply by creating a config file and a data file. ViciDial/iConnect uses this package to generate server performance graphs that can be displayed real-time within the ViciDial/iConnect reports page.
cd /usr/src
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ploticus/ploticus/2.42/ploticus242_src.tar.gz
tar -zxf ploticus242_src.tar.gz
cd ploticus242/src/

Installing Asterisk

Any time you upgrade the Linux kernel you must recompile/install dahdi for the new kernel.
Asterisk must be compiled with dahdi support.
Note: The install MUST be done in the following order:
Minor note: dahdi-linux-complete-current.tar.gz and libpri-1.4-current.tar.gz may contain an updated version than what I am currently using, therefore the directory names may be different than shown below.

mkdir /usr/src/asterisk

Installing astGUIclient (ViciDial/iConnect)

First, login to mysql to create the database, add a couple users and assign privileges.
mysql -u root –p

Enter these MySQL commands:

CREATE DATABASE `asterisk` DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci;
CREATE USER ‘cron’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘1234’;
GRANT SELECT,INSERT,UPDATE,DELETE,LOCK TABLES on asterisk.* TO cron@’%’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘1234’;
GRANT SELECT,INSERT,UPDATE,DELETE,LOCK TABLES on asterisk.* TO cron@localhost IDENTIFIED BY ‘1234’;
GRANT RELOAD ON *.* TO cron@’%’;
GRANT RELOAD ON *.* TO cron@localhost;
flush privileges;
quit

I am going to install the latest 2.x SVN trunk which happens to be version 2.8 at the time of writing this guide

mkdir /usr/src/astguiclient
cd /usr/src/astguiclient
svn checkout svn://svn.eflo.net:3690/agc_2-X/trunk
cd trunk
perl install.pl

You will have to define various things like IP address of the server
It will also ask you where is the web root, use /var/www/html
Leave the other login settings as-is unless you already know how to update the database and other asterisk config files.

Import sample data
Login to mysql to run some commands

mysql -u root -p
Enter these MySQL commands:

mysql>SET GLOBAL connect_timeout=60;
mysql>use asterisk;

mysql>. /usr/src/astguiclient/trunk/extras/MySQL_AST_CREATE_tables.sql
mysql>. /usr/src/astguiclient/trunk/extras/first_server_install.sql
mysql>. /usr/src/astguiclient/trunk/extras/sip-iax_phones.sql

mysql>quit

In the Linux terminal, enter these commands
/usr/share/astguiclient /ADMIN_area_code_populate.pl

Final Adjustments

Make several entries in the rc.local of your system.

vi /etc/rc.d/rc.local

On a new system I just overwrite the file with the following:
#!/bin/sh

#
# This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts.
# You can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don’t
# want to do the full Sys V style init stuff.
touch /var/lock/subsys/local
# OPTIONAL enable ip_relay(for same-machine trunking and blind monitoring)
/usr/share/astguiclient/ip_relay/relay_control start 2>/dev/null 1>&2
# Disable console blanking and powersaving
/usr/bin/setterm -blank
/usr/bin/setterm -powersave off
/usr/bin/setterm -powerdown
