Appendix A. Installation instructions for Asterisk 1.4

Note

The installation instructions in this appendix assume an installation on a freshly-installed operating system. If you deviate from this (e.g. using a server with a previously installed operating system that has been running for some time) you may encounter problems, depending on the specific circumstances. When troubleshooting any problems which arise, we recommend you proceed through the installation exactly as it is described here first.
It is in the nature of a book and any rapidly changing software that the installation procedure will change from time to time. When in doubt, please check the on-line version at http://www.the-asterisk-book.com.
