This page explains how to install VoipNow using an ISO Image.
|Table of Contents|
In order to install VoipNow using an ISO image, you need to use a bare metal server or a virtualization technology that emulates the bare metal environment and is compliant with these minimum hardware requirements.
This VoipNow ISO installation process is very similar to the installation of a CentOS/RedHat Linux distribution.
Download the VoipNow ISO Image from here. The ISO is based on a CentOS 7 x86_64 Linux distribution.
Boot the ISO
Boot from VoipNow DVD/ISO.
Select the installation language and press Continue.
Configure the network settings before proceeding with the installation.
Click on NETWORK & HOSTNAME.
Click on IPv4 Settings and choose the method for setting the IP address. If you have an DHCP server inside your network, press Save.
Otherwise, you need to manually enter the IP Address, Netmask, Gateway, and DNS server.
Once you have completed the IPv4 Settings, enable the switch and check that the link status is Connected.
Then press Done.
Partition the disk
Automatic partition is selected by default. However, you still have to confirm the installation disk.
To proceed with partitioning, press INSTALLATION DESTINATION.
If you have just one disk for VoipNow, just press Save.
Make sure that the disk you've selected is empty. Otherwise, it can lead to data loss!
At this point, you can start the installation process and set the
root password. Optionally, you can set the Localization options.
Press Begin Installation.
Once the installation has started, press ROOT PASSWORD to configure at least the
root password for the shell.
Once the installation process has completed, press Reboot to start VoipNow. If the system is set to always boot from CDROM drive, remove the DVD.
Log in to the web management interface
Installation is now complete. At this point, you need to configure the system using the web management interface.
To do so, open
https://<InstallationIP> in the browser.
Log in to the interface using the following details:
Username: admin Password: welcome
For system security reasons, we recommend that you change the administrator password as soon as you log in!
