As some of you may be aware, A2Billing 1.4 is shortly to be released under beta, and it would be good to get as many eyes on it as possible.

The more contribution we have, then the better the end product.

There are lots of new features, a clean up of the invoicing, commission agent/reseller functionality and database efficiency savings.

I should mention that this is in no way suitable for commercial deployment, or testing on a production PBX. There is lots of work to be done to bring it up to scratch.

Additionally, there is work progressing on documentation, and we expect the documentation to be the best it's ever been for a new release of A2Billing.

Installation Prerequisites

It is assumed that you have already installed Asterisk on a suitable machine. This tutorial does not cover that part of the installation. If you are unfamiliar with the install of Asterisk, it may be better to start with a pre-built distributiion, e.g.

PBX in a Flash - www.pbxinaflash.com, or the newest entry, http://www.fonicaprojects.com written by me.

Both are based on Centos, so these instructions are Centos biased.

Both these distributions can be installed on a VMWare image for testing if no hardware is available.

If you have handrolled your own distribution, and are familiar with 1.3.4, then the we assume that you have the necessary dependencies already installed.


Install Dependencies

Code:
yum -y install perl-DBD-Pg subversion



#get A2Billing

Code:
mkdir /var/a2billing_install
cd /var/a2billing_install
svn co --username guest --password guest http://svn.a2billing.net/svn/asterisk2billing/trunk

copy a2billing.conf in /var/a2billing_install/trunk to /etc/a2billing.conf

Edit a2billing.conf to suit your installation. e.g. change dbtype to mysql.

Install Database

Note that for Piaf and FonicaPABX, the database password is passw0rd and the location is localhost

Code:
echo "GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'a2billinguser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'a2billing' WITH GRANT OPTION;" | mysql -ppassw0rd
mysqladmin create mya2billing -u a2billinguser -pa2billing



Code:
cd /var/a2billing_install/trunk/DataBase/mysql-5.x
./install-db.sh


Answer the questions appropriately with reference to /etc/a2billing.conf

You should now have a database called mya2billing with over 70 tables in it.


Install the AGI and Sound Files

So that we can easily update the system when changes are made during this period of change, we are going to use links back to the location where we installed the SVN download, so that an update from the SVN will immediately reflect in your A2Billing install.

Note that Database changes will not be included using this methodology, so these will have to be done by hand.

This is not the usual way of doing it, but for testing, it works well.

Code:
ln /var/a2billing_install/trunk/AGI/a2billing.php /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin/a2billing.php


Code:
#set ownership and permissions on AGI
chown asterisk:asterisk /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin/a2billing.php
chmod +x /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin/a2billing.php

#Set up sounds
cd /var/a2billing_install/trunk/addons/sounds
./install_a2b_sounds.sh

#set ownership on sounds
chown -R asterisk:asterisk /var/lib/asterisk/


Now edit /etc/asterisk/manager_custom.conf (or manager.conf for those not using a pre-rolled distribution). Add the following lines
Code:
[myasterisk]
secret = mycode
deny=0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0
permit=127.0.0.1/255.255.255.0
read = system,call,log,verbose,command,agent,user
write = system,call,log,verbose,command,agent,user


Install Web Pages

Code:
mkdir /var/www/html/a2billing

Common

Code:
ln -s /var/a2billing_install/trunk/common /var/www/html/a2billing/common



Admin pages


Code:
ln -s /var/a2billing_install/trunk/admin /var/www/html/a2billing/admin


Agent

Code:
ln -s /var/a2billing_install/trunk/agent /var/www/html/a2billing/agent


Customer

Code:
ln -s /var/a2billing_install/trunk/customer /var/www/html/a2billing/customer


Now we need to set permissions for Apache.

If you are using a pre-rolled Distro, then web group and ownership are asterisk and asterisk, if you are not using a distro, then you probably know what to set anyway.
Code:
chown -R asterisk:asterisk /var/www/html/a2billing/
chown -R asterisk:asterisk /var/a2billing_install/trunk/common
chown -R asterisk:asterisk /var/a2billing_install/trunk/admin
chown -R asterisk:asterisk /var/a2billing_install/trunk/customer
chown -R asterisk:asterisk /var/a2billing_install/trunk/agent

# Ensure all log files exist so we can set their permissions correctly

touch /var/log/api_callback_request.log

Callback

At the moment, I have not cracked the installation of Callback on version 5.2 of Centos, so if anyone has any ideas on how to do this, or a brief howto, then please let me know.

The instructions are in /var/a2billing_install/trunk/addons/Doc

The files are in /var/a2billing_install/trunk/CallBack

Dialplan

The dialplan you put into Asterisk is the same as it was for A2Billing 1.3.4. I've not got round to writing the dialplan as yet.


Reboot

Login

http://Your-Switch/a2billing

Log into the admin pages with root and changepassword

General Setup

The general setup is similar to 1.3.4, and the order of events is approximately similar

    Set up trunk
    Set up callplan
    Setup rate plan
    add rate table to callplan
    add rates
    add customer
    test.

Guidelines

Keep an eye on the development of A2Billing 1.4 here.

http://www.asterisk2billing.org/cgi-bin ... wser/trunk

Make sure that you are running the latest version before reporting a bug by periodically running.

Code:
cd /var/a2billing_install
svn co --username guest --password guest http://svn.a2billing.net/svn/asterisk2billing/trunk
chown -R asterisk:asterisk /var/a2billing_install/trunk/common
chown -R asterisk:asterisk /var/a2billing_install/trunk/admin
chown -R asterisk:asterisk /var/a2billing_install/trunk/customer
chown -R asterisk:asterisk /var/a2billing_install/trunk/agent
chown asterisk:asterisk /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin/a2billing.php
chmod +x /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin/a2billing.php


Bugs can be dicussed in the 1.4 bugs section here - http://forum.asterisk2billing.org/viewforum.php?f=22
before reporting them on the bug tracker.

Bugs tracking and reporting can be done here:-
http://www.asterisk2billing.org/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/report

The instructions were written from memory and my notes, so I am not guaranteeing accuracy, any corrections, let me know.

Finally, did I mention that A2Billing should not be put into a production environment, and its probably not a good idea to install it on a production PBX.


Yours

Joe Roper

Joe, wow - that's great. Now I need to find time for setting up testing.

Will you be creating a nice install script for this like you did on 1.3.4 on PIAF? (please) :D ... just makes life so easy.

Upon installing (or upgrading to) v1.4 all the admin users' passwords are set to 'changepassword'.
Now you know this you may want to change it back to the default password: '410fc6268dd3332226de95e42d9efa4046c5463769d7493b85e65cfa5c26362dc2455cc23c0bc5831deb008def4ab11a9eaa9b76ba3f377da134f39ec60dd758'.

Of course, if you hadn't double posted your question I wouldn't have had to waste time answering it for a second time. :(

Entered in the database mysql and back to the default password'410fc6268dd3332226de95e42d9efa4046c5463769d7493b85e65cfa5c26362dc2455cc23c0bc5831deb008def4ab11a9eaa9b76ba3f377da134f39ec60dd758 '.
I try to log on (user> "root") and (password> "Changepassword") but not enter, the error: "Authentication refused, please check your user / password!" What am I doing wrong? Thanks

Using a capital 'C' rather than a small one: 'changepassword'

Copy a2billing.conf to /etc/a2billing.conf or /etc/asterisk/a2billing.conf?

Hi

Thanks for that, I've updated the post.

Note that when installing on Trixbox, they advise that Trixbox is well covered by some sort of firewall, rather than connecting it directly to a public IP with no firewall in place.

Hi

Here is a script to install callback, assuming you have followed the instructions above, and assuming the trunk is in the same place. Edit as required.

This appears to work for CentOS, and has been tested on FonicaPABX and PiaF.

Please check and revert back if any problems.
