Wazo Platform Tutorial: Installing Wazo on a Dedicated PC

Getting Started

For stand-alone machine installations of Wazo, begin by downloading the 64-bit Wazo Server ISO to your desktop. Burn the ISO to a CD/DVD or USB stick. Then boot your server from the install device. WARNING: Your entire disk and all connected drives will be erased as part of the installation process.

Debian/Wazo Installation

Click Install, choose your language, pick your time zone, choose your keyboard map, create a very secure root password, choose a Debian mirror that’s close to your server, and choose your bootloader device. Then sit back and relax. In about 15 minutes, the install will complete and your server will reboot.

Enabling Root SSH Access

When you install Wazo using the ISO, root logins via SSH are disabled by default. Only enable it if you plan to also implement the firewall in the next step! To enable root logins via SSH, log into your server console as root and edit the SSH config file: nano -w /etc/ssh/sshd_config. Find the line in the Authentication section that begins with PermitRootLogin and change it to: PermitRootLogin yes. Save your change (Ctrl-X, y, ENTER) and then restart SSH: /etc/init.d/ssh restart.

When the configuration setup is finished, use ifconfig to obtain the IP address of your server.

Incredible PBX Installation

Log into your server again as root via SSH/Putty and issue the following commands to complete the Wazo and Incredible PBX setup.

cd /root
wget http://incrediblepbx.com/IncrediblePBX15-Wazo.sh
chmod +x IncrediblePBX15-Wazo.sh

Managing Your Wazo Server

Almost everything else you do with Wazo can be handled using a web browser pointed to this IP address.

Open a web browser to the IP address of your server. Ignore the https credentials warning to access your server. The default username for access is root, and the password is the one set during the Configuration step above.

You now can proceed to Incredible PBX Initial Configuration tutorial to continue your setup.
