I tried to get it working for an unsupported package in AUR but I've not had the time or proper motivation to really get it off of the ground. I did, however, check into it somewhat.
From what I can tell it seems to want a large # of configuration changes. And it wants them before it will install. As such it seems that the general consensus is that it's best to modify the FreePBX installer to no longer have any of it's checks. Then upon install the freepbx installer would need to install configuration files for apache, mysql, and php. The old config files would be backed up by the installer.
So the general outline:
1. Heavily modify the FreePBX install script so that it makes no checks. Keep track of each change it wanted to see though. The pkgbuild will need the modified install script as well as the preconfigured copies of the config files for mysql, php, and apache. Also, the package would need to setup a user for freepbx upon install
2. The package would need an auxillary install file that puts the modified config files in place (backing up what used to be there) and sets up the user
I'll try to get a bit more specific later but that's the general outline. It isn't as straightforward as most packages.
Any luck with FreePBX? I'm trying to set it up here too...
But still without success...
My home server running Arch 24/7:
Intel Atom 330, 2GB RAM, 2TB Disks
There might be some relief soon, stay tuned...
Some good news, d'Ronin has released a PKGBUILD for FreePBX - Everyone is encouraged to test it out and provide feedback please!
Yes as such it seems that the general consensus is that it is best to modify the FreePBX installer to no longer have any of it's checks...

The current Asterisk AUR PKGBUILD is up-to-date for the latest version of Asterisk (Asterisk-12), but the FreePBX AUR PKGBUILD is out of date. Recently, FreePBX released (beta) their long anticipated version FreePBX-12 that is compatible with Asterisk-12. I also have FreePBX / Asterisk running on Debian, but I would love to see an ArchLinux version of FreePBX to go with the PKBBUILD for Asterisk. I've been working on a rough installation script trying to adjusting for the difference between Ubuntu/Debian and Arch, which impact FreePBX's installation.
My goal is to update the FreePBX AUR so we have a FreePBX installation to go with our Asterisk AUR. Is anyone interesting in collaborating / sharing notes on getting the latest version of FreePBX working on Arch.

calzon, this thread is over 6 years old - and it looks like the participants may not have been active on these forums in over 5 years.
Avoid "necrobumping" old threads. If you would like to discuss the current PKGBUILD (certainly changed in the past 5 years) please open a new thread.
