Welcome to the FUSIONPBX getting started guide. In this section we will show how to install FUSIONPBX. FUSIONPBX can be used on multiple different operating systems, databases, and web servers. In this guide we will show on Debian 8 (Jessie), Postgresql and NGINX. Please note to have a clean install. The install script will install everything but the Operating System

1. Goto a console and follow the recommended steps from https://fusionpbx.com/app/www/download.php for a standard installation. Some installations require special considerations. Visit https://github.com/fusionpbx/fusionpbx-install.sh Readme section for more details.

This install script is designed to be a fast, simple, and modular way to install FusionPBX. Start with a minimal install of Debian 8 with SSH enabled. Run the following commands under root. The script installs FusionPBX, FreeSWITCH release package and its dependencies, IPTables, Fail2ban, NGINX, PHP FPM and PostgreSQL.

Also, be sure to watch the youtube video from FreeSWITCH Cluecon Weekly https://www.youtube.com/embed/kejAxlYSW3o FusionPBX is installed and more!

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/fusionpbx/fusionpbx-install.sh/master/install.sh -O install.sh && sh install.sh

2. At the end of the install the script will instruct you to go to the ip address of the server in your web browser to finish the install. The script will also provide a secure random database password for you to use during the web based phase of the install. The install script builds the fusionpbx database so you will not need to use the create database username and password on the last page of the web based install.

After you have completed the install you can login with the GUI username and password you chose during the install. After you login, go to the menu and choose Advanced -> Upgrade select the checkbox for App defaults then execute.
