What is 2600hz?

2600hz is home to a collection of open-source telephony software that enables the use of the FreeSWITCH, Asterisk and YATE switching libraries. Initially built around the blue.box project, we aim to provide a collection of software to power your GUI, your cloud-based telephony switch and/or your monitoring and maintenance tool set.

Set up 2600hz bluesbox on Alpine Linux

This document will be a very quick c/p guide to setup 2600hz on Alpine linux. What we will setup is the following:

  • Lighttpd with PHP
  • Postgresql
  • git
  • 2600hz (bluesbox)
  • Freeswitch

Install lighttpd, PHP and postgresql

apk add git lighttpd php php-iconv php-json php-gd php-curl php-xml php-pgsql php-imap php-pdo php-pdo_pgsql php-soap php-xmlrpc php-posix php-mcrypt php-gettext postgresql postgresql-client

Configuring Lighttpd

Edit lighttpd.conf

nano +46 /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf

Uncomment line:

uncoment    include "mod_fastcgi.conf", save and exit

Note: If you are using the Alpine ACF, change the lighttpd port:

nano +81 /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf 
uncomment and change the line to: server.port          = 8080

Starting http service and adding to boot

/etc/init.d/lighttpd start && rc-update add lighttpd default

Configuring postgresql

/etc/init.d/postgresql setup

Starting http service and adding to boot

/etc/init.d/postgresql start && rc-update add postgresql default

Installing FreeSwitch

Installing Freeswitch

  apk add freeswitch freeswitch-flite freeswitch-sounds-en-us-callie-8000 freeswitch-sample-config -U -X http://build.alpinelinux.org:8009/backports/1.10/ --allow-untrusted

Changing some permissions

chown lighttpd:lighttpd /etc/freeswitch/	
chmod 777 -R /etc/freeswitch/


Starting http and sql server and adding to boot

/etc/init.d/postgresql setup
/etc/init.d/postgresql start && rc-update add postgresql default
/etc/init.d/lighttpd start && rc-update add lighttpd default 

Installing 2600hz

Install 2600hz (bluesbox)

Make webapps folder

mkdir /usr/share/webapps/ -p


cd /usr/share/webapps/
git clone git://source.2600hz.org/bluebox.git bluebox/

Change Folder Persmissions

chmod -R 777 /usr/share/webapps/bluesbox

Make symlinks to 2600hz

ln -s /usr/share/webapps/bluesbox/ /var/www/localhost/htdocs/bluesbox

Configuring bluesbox

Log on your bluesbox

Browse to: http://WEBSERVER_IP_ADDRESS/bluesbox and start configuration.

  • Welcome to Bluebox 1.0 Setup Wizard

Accept Terms and Conditions Next

  • Initial Configuration

Select pqsl as database server, bluebox as database name, postgres as user, no password Set Default Timezone Next

  • Create Main Administrator

Master Administration Account

Email Address:youremail@yourserver.net Password:adminpassword Confirm Password:adminpassword


  • Telephony Engine

In Telephony Configuration

Conf Directory: /etc/freeswitch

Global Sound File Directory: /usr/sounds


Conflicting configuration files will be permanently erased if you continue!


  • Installation

Ready to Install


After that you will see Click here to use Bluebox 1.0!

And you finish you Bluesbox installation.

Note: If you are using the Alpine ACF, or if you change the port in the lighttpd.conf file, the go to the port you set. e.g: if you set the port to 8080, then browse to: http://WEBSERVER_IP_ADDRESS:8080/bluesbox
