FusionPBX Install

A quick install guide & scripts for installing FusionPBX. It is recommended to start with a minimal install of the operating system. Notes on further tweaking your configuration are at end of the file.

Operating Systems

Debian and Raspberry OS

Debian is the preferred operating system by the FreeSWITCH developers. It supports the latest video dependencies and should be used if you want to do video mixing. Download Debian at

wget -O - | sh;
cd /usr/src/ && ./

Ubuntu and Raspberry OS

wget -O - | sh;
cd /usr/src/ && ./


If you like Debian but rather not bother with systemd, Devuan is a "drop in" replacement. Devuan ASCII is based on Stretch, so you will find most of the same packages available. Please note that the source installation and installation on ARM is not fully tested.

wget -O - | sh;
cd /usr/src/ && ./


FreeBSD is an operating system that has many great features like ZFS, HAST, CARP and more.

pkg install --yes git
cd /usr/src && git clone
cd /usr/src/


CentOS operating system is a requirement for some companies. Don't expect video mixing to work. It will likely be a year or more for video mixing dependencies to be updated enough to work in CentOS.

wget -O - | sh
cd /usr/src/ && ./

Security Considerations

Fail2ban is installed and pre-configured for all operating systems this repository works on besides Windows, but the default settings may not be ideal depending on your needs. Please take a look at the jail file (/etc/fail2ban/jail.local on Debian/Devuan) to configure it to suit your application and security model!
