  • Along with this, there will be a new release of FusionPBX to follow.

Moving to GIT

What Is FusionPBX

FusionPBX is an open source project that provides a customizable and flexible web graphical user/administration interface.

That takes freeswitch FreeSWITCH and converts it in to a single/multi tenant gateway or pbx system.

It can be run on the operating system you are comfortable with, and hardware of your choice. FusionPBX provides a GUI for for unlimited extensions,

voicemail-to-email, music on hold, call parking, and many other Features. It provides the functionality your business needs, and brings corporate

level phone system features to small, medium and large businesses. Read more at

Why Use FusionPBX

There are three key reasons you might want to use FusionPBX:

  • it adds extra functionality to FreeSWITCH
  • it makes it easier to administer FreeSWITCH (while at the same time allowing you to still work directly with FreeSWITCH when you don't want to use a GUI)
  • it gives your users a GUI interface to phone system functionality such as voicemail/fax/follow-me/do-not-disturb, call detail records, fax and conference extensions can be assigned to users, and more...

For support on FusionPBX what should you do?

  1. Look in this wiki
  2. FusionPBX IRC channel
  3. Commercial Support which supports the project

Note that the Forum for FusionPBX is not currently used much but we have a very active IRC channel. You are therefore more likely to get timely help in the IRC channel than in the Forum. That said, the wiki is the key place you will find documentation - as things come up in IRC they get documented in the wiki - so do look there for answers. Primarily the wiki is arranged following the menu structure but there are also additional topic areas listed as well.

Note also that because FusionPBX is built on top of FreeSWITCH and intentionally uses the same terminology as used in FreeSWITCH, often if there is a lack of information in the FusionPBX wiki it is because there is relevant information readily available in the FreeSWITCH wiki on that exact same thing. So do look at the FreeSWITCH wiki. The one thing that you need to bear in mind when looking at the FreeSWITCH wiki is that examples they give will generally be in XML as that is how you configure FreeSWITCH. While FusionPBX does allow you to still work in XML if you want (see Editing Config Files Safely) the intention of FusionPBX is generally to save you from needing to deal directly with XML.
