Asterisk packages installation on CentOS 7

Asterisk PBX

Officially now Asterisk packages repository is gone. Asterisk installation manual gone as well.

If you use Asterisk on CentOS or RHEL, you want to be using RPM packages, not messing around with building source tarballs on each of the machines you maintain. I use Asterisk on CentOS, both on CentOS 6 and more recently on CentOS 7 working with quite a few systems that it’s important to keep consistent.

Zabbix-monitoring-systemMost companies have a wide variety of services running, usually with public and private facing interfaces.
