Easy Install? (Complete CD, with Linux and FreePBX)
The easiest way to install FreePBX is to download the Distro ISO which includes FreePBX, Asterisk, Linux and all the other needed applications. Burn it to a CD, and then boot your system off the ISO. Your system will then reformat and upon completion you will have a fully functioning FreePBX Distro ready to configure your phones and trunks.
FreePBX Tarball Only?
Looking to just download one of the latest FreePBX "tarball" installers to roll your own distribution or update an existing one, here are the two latest releases ready to install and get going. If this is a brand new install, the FreePBX Distro above is your quickest and easiest way to get a complete "FreePBX appliance" fully installed and ready to configure for your needs.
Once installed, FreePBX is fully upgradeable in the GUI using the Online Module Administration page to upgrade individual modules as well as the base FreePBX code through the FreePBX Framework Module.
Installing FreePBX from scratch requires the installation of many prerequisite components. Although there are several pre-configured ISOs available (see above), detailed instructions for several flavors of Linux can be found on the Installation Instructions Page.
