This module installs FreePBX open source IP PBX.

Module Description

This module download, install and configure FreePBX with optional asterisk telephony framework and its dependencies installation.

This module is based on Sangoma 'Installing FreePBX 14 on CentOS 7' document, but using asterisk packages from tucny repo instead of building it from source.

  • Implemented via resources, so beware of resource duplication


This module requires the requirements:

  • puppet-archive
  • puppet-nodejs
  • puppet-selinux
  • puppet-yum
  • puppetlabs-augeas_core
  • puppetlabs-stdlib


Usage Example

Simple example that downloads and installs FreePBX, asterisk and all dependencies

include freepbx

More complex example :

This example will install asterisk 13, set verbose to 10, set SELinux mode and reboot to apply SELinux changes

class {'freepbx':
  asterisk_version     => 13,
  asterisk_verbose     => 10,
  selinux_mode         => 'permissive',
  reboot_after_install => true,

If you do not want to install asterisk using this module. Note that you must install asterisk another way before including freepbx class

class {'freepbx':
  asterisk_install => false

Install FreePBX module 'queue'

freepbx::config::module {'queue':}


In a virtualbox machine using Vagrant

It is possible to use vagrant to provision a VM for testing purposes. All you have to do is type:

# Start the VM
vagrant up
# Access VM terminal
vagrant ssh

Once the provisioning ends you can type the VM's IP address to access the FreePBX Web UI.

In a remote server using bolt

Installing a test FreePBX on a remote server using bolt (mind you that a passwordless ssh key access must be configured first):

bolt task run puppet_agent::install --targets SERVER_IP_ADDRESS -u root
bolt file upload tests/freepbx.pp /tmp/freepbx.pp --targets SERVER_IP_ADDRESS -u root
bolt command run '/opt/puppetlabs/bin/puppet module install alisio-freepbx' --targets SERVER_IP_ADDRESS -u root
bolt command run '/opt/puppetlabs/bin/puppet apply /tmp/freepbx.pp' --targets SERVER_IP_ADDRESS -u root

Once the provisioning ends you can type IP address of the server on your browser to access the FreePBX Web UI.

In a local server

Installing locally on a server:

rpm -Uvh
yum -y --nogpgcheck install puppet-agent git
/opt/puppetlabs/bin/puppet module install alisio-freepbx
git clone
/opt/puppetlabs/bin/puppet apply alisio-freepbx/tests/freepbx.pp

Once the provisioning ends you can type IP address of the server on your browser to access the FreePBX Web UI.
