We walked through the RedHat ISO creation procedure a couple years ago, but we wanted to revisit the issue using the 64-bit Scientific Linux 6.9 platform for those that want a current ISO image with Asterisk® 13 LTS. We recommend setting up your build environment on a VirtualBox virtual machine. Then you’ll have something to store away on your desktop computer in the event you ever want to create more customized ISOs. For today, you’ll need the 64-bit SL 6.9… Read More ›

One of the perplexing realities with VoIP-based servers is how few people actually back up their systems. For anyone who has ventured into the IT world over the past 40 years, there’s one maxim worth remembering: "It’s not a question of whether your server will fail. It’s only a question of when." Incredible PBX® always has provided a backup mechanism in standalone servers to recover from disasters. But then cloud-based computing came along. Two of our favorite providers, Digital Ocean… Read More ›

That’s why our introduction of Issabel 4 last summer was such a breath of fresh air. While there’s now an awesome free version of 3CX, the open source community has had a very long dry spell. So today we celebrate a decade of adding fun to phone systems with the introduction of Incredible PBX® 13 for Issabel 4. It now includes… Read More ›

We frequently receive requests asking how best to create custom voice prompts to use with Asterisk® or 3CX® PBXs. Of course, our first recommendation is to always direct folks to Allison Smith whose voice prompts for Asterisk are legendary. But, for those on a tight budget, recordings by a professional voice talent may not be a viable option. So, today, in the Christmas spirit, we want to deliver the next best thing with synthesized voice prompts that are second to… Read More ›
