What I need is more beer. :cheers2:

If it means getting that working better, let us know what brand and how to get it to you !!!

With the new repository you have established, do you plan to have one for the Elastix MT version as well?
Will there be any collaboration with the Elastix folks to get the best of both worlds?

big tip,

dont run
Code:
#Reconfigure Mysql
echo "SET PASSWORD FOR 'root'@'localhost' = PASSWORD('passw0rd');" | mysql -u root
until installing everything else, otherwise none of the sql tables install, very, very frustrating

Hi vic555 it's elastix 3.0, was it ever advertised as working? jokes aside, I have yet to find the time to attempt another install.
I know you are working on a number of platforms, and distributions. Elastix 2.xx was always a bright spot, with some security configuration questions; MT4 (Beta) now on Centos 7, appears to be bogged down in some kind of an unknown development state, so we we were looking to Elastix 3.0 for a production setup if and when appropriate.

It's a very long line at the moment. Hopefully, that will provide the Elastix folks a little time to work out some kinks.

ok, finally got time to have a look at this again, comparing the elastixmt kamailio documentation to sipwise's kamailio documentation shows some interesting bits

edit: looks like the elastix.2oo7 password is hardcoded, sigh

edit edit: rtpproxy missing from install instructions, asteriskuser has wrong password, kamailio errors completely, fail2ban does not exist, shall I continue?

if you change the mysql root password from eLaStIx.2oo7 to passw0rd none of the elastix updates install.

Code:

I will be deleting this server on cloudatcost, but yes, too many services are down, and too many packages missing from install script, no fail2ban and no rtpproxy being a big issue

hecatae wardmundy does that mean that cloud at cost is hosed (at least for now)as well? It is well known that Elastix.3.0MT was never ready for primetime.

I have not definatively heard of anything pointing to a viable muti-tenant open source Software solution, though some say the Third Lane offering can work for.those can do some heavy configuration lifting. Please post if possible.

ThirdLane MT works fine. 10-user license is free so you can try it for yourself. When you're ready to purchase, call Alex and tell him I sent you: 415.261.6601
