The following guide is a relatively easy way to install FusionPBX and FreeSWITCH with the ubuntu/debian script.

Note: This script will not work with Raspbian Stretch Lite or Raspbian Stretch with desktop.

  • Download 'Raspian' image.
  • Write the image to an 2gb+ higher SD card. The following tool is a simple windows application that can write the image to an SD card.
  • Start it up the Raspberry Pi by pluggin in the USB power with HDMI plugged into a monitor or tv.
Login with:
username: pi
password raspberry
  • The first time you load the operating system it comes up with a menu.

This menu has an option to enlarge the image to fit the SD card. Run that or you won't have enough space to add FreeSWITCH.

cd /usr/src
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/fusionpbx/fusionpbx-scripts/master/install/debian/install_fusionpbx.sh
chmod 755 install_fusionpbx.sh
  • Take a look at the options available to the script. you could install freeswitch first, and then install fusionpbx or you can install both.
install_fusionpbx.sh install-both auto


  • 4gb or larger SD card.
  • SQLite is ideal for the Raspberry Pi for the database. Alternatively Postgres also work rather well.
  • Web server nginx. (saves RAM)
