By day 14.12.2011 is Siremis v3.2.0 out. Siremis is the web management interface for Kamailio SIP Server. This is a major release, which is compatible with Kamailio v3.2.x. As we are using latest Kamailio 3.2 server we will do install and test latest Siremis GUI (however version 2.1 of siremis works with Kamailio 3.2). I follows official guide released on asipto web page.
Installed Kamailio (OpenSER) 3.2 server.
Web server (e.g., Apache2) with mod_rewrite enabled
PHP5 with MySQL and GD support
siremis database with granted user access
The apache server have to have enabled mod_rewrite!!! Without mod_rewrite there is unable login, because you are redirected on a broken web link!!!
Installing apache web server with php5
apt-get install apache2 apache2-doc php5 php5-mysql php5-gd
Enable mod_rewrite for your apache. Enabling rewrite mode for my Apache 2 means add symlink from /etc/apache2/mods-available into /etc/apache2/mods-enabled. Alternativelly we enable rewrite mode with
Without this we are not able to use siremis web after installation.
Download and install siremis 3.2.0
Go to your preferred donwload folder or your home folder and using wget download latest siremis from the http://siremis.asipto.com/pub/downloads/siremis/ site.
Go to the www folder
and extract siremis files here
tar xvfx /home/palo/siremis/siremis-3.2.0.tgz
new folder siremis-3.2.0 appear here.
Web server setup
First time Siremis web access setup
edit the apache default file
and add lines with alias pointing to your siremis files located in /var/www/siremis-3.2.0/siremis
Alias /siremis "/var/www/siremis-3.2.0/siremis" <Directory "/var/www/siremis-3.2.0/siremis"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews DirectoryIndex index.php index.html AllowOverride All Order allow,deny Allow from all <Files "\.xml$"> Order deny,allow Deny from all </Files> <Files ~ "\.inc$"> Order allow,deny Deny from all </Files> </Directory>
Alternatively, move to your web root with siremis file
pstest:/var/www/siremis-3.2.0# make apache-conf # siremis apache conf snippet ... Alias /siremis "/var/www/siremis-3.2.0/siremis" <Directory "/var/www/siremis-3.2.0/siremis"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride All Order allow,deny Allow from all <FilesMatch "\.xml$"> Order deny,allow Deny from all </FilesMatch> <FilesMatch "\.inc$"> Order deny,allow Deny from all </FilesMatch> </Directory>
Then copy and paste config to your default apacha config at
Finally do not forget restart apache2 service
Updating existing siremis file
If you have installed previous version of siremis (like 2.1), just modify existing apache config pointing to your new siremis install location. Do not forget drop previous siremis database.
Siremis local configuration
Go to the folder
and run make prepare
make prepare updating htaccess file... updating app.inc file... creating folders... done
Make sure that following directories have write access for web server user:
using for example
chown www-data:www-data -R *
Do not forget to restart the web server after doing the changes in its configuration file.
Creating siremis database
The installation of the siremis version 3.2 suppose that you have an user with granted privilege access.
mysql -p mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON siremis.* TO siremis@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'siremisrw'; Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.09 sec)
To install siremis we will use siremis Web wizard, so open preffered browser and point to
URL is redirecting to the siremis installation wizard pages and we just need to follow steps described in http://kb.asipto.com/siremis:install32x:main. The initial web page should be loaded. Then follow installation steps. The most critical step is three, where we have to provide correct information required for database connection (either siremis and kamailio). The siremis database is for internal siremis use, the kamailio database is used by the Kamailio SIP server as persistant storage, for example for SIP localization.
Check in Import Default Data > box Because there is default admin account with defautl password.
That should be all!
We should be able login into siremis and work with siremis.
Do not forget to remove the install directory at siremis/install
