OpenSIPS Control Panel is a PHP based web application for provisioning an OpenSIPS SIP server. It can be used to provision, operate, and monitor multiple instances of OpenSIPS servers across the globe. It is specially designed for the VoIP providers to develop their own interface with the end users.
Here, I will explain how to install OpenSIPS Control Panel on Ubuntu 16.04 server.
A newly deployed Vultr Ubuntu 16.04 server instance.
A non-root user with sudo privileges setup on your server.
Before installing any packages, you will need to update your system to the latest stable version by running the following commands:
sudo apt-get update -y sudo apt-get upgrade -y sudo reboot
Install Apache, MySQL, PHP and other required dependencies on your server. You can install all of them with the following command:
sudo apt-get install apache2 mysql-server php7.0 php7.0-cli php7.0-mysql php7.0-xmlrpc php-pear php-log php-mdb2-driver-mysql -y
Once the installation is complete, start Apache and MySQL services and enable them to start at boot:
sudo systemctl start apache2 sudo systemctl start mysql sudo systemctl enable apache2 sudo systemctl enable mysql
Download the latest stable version of the Opensips-CP.
Once the download has completed, extract the downloaded file with the following command:
Next, move the extracted directory to the Apache web root directory:
sudo mv opensips-cp-6.2 /var/www/html/opensips
Next, give proper permissions to the
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html/opensips
You will need to configure Apache for Opensips-CP. You can do this by adding following lines at the end of the
sudo nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
Add the following lines at the end of the file:
<Directory /var/www/html/opensips/web> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride None Order allow,deny allow from all </Directory> <Directory /var/www/html/opensips> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride None Order deny,allow deny from all </Directory> Alias /cp /var/www/html/opensips/web
Save and close the file when you are finished.
Next, edit the
sudo nano /etc/php/7.0/cli/php.ini
Change the following line:
short_open_tag = On;
Save the file and restart the Apache service:
sudo systemctl restart apache2
Create a database for Opensips-CP by logging into a MySQL shell.
mysql -u root -p
Enter your password, then create a new database:
mysql> create database opensips character set utf8; mysql> exit;
ocp_admin_privileges table schema from the
sudo mysql -u root -p opensips < /var/www/html/opensips/config/tools/admin/add_admin/ocp_admin_privileges.mysql
Next, insert a "first login user" into the table with the following command:
sudo echo "INSERT INTO ocp_admin_privileges (username,password,ha1,available_tools,permissions) values ('admin','admin',md5('admin:admin'),'all','all');" | sudo mysql -u root -p opensips
You will need to edit the
db.inc.php file and update your database credentials:
sudo nano /var/www/html/opensips/config/db.inc.php
Change the lines as shown below:
$config->db_driver = "mysql"; $config->db_host = "localhost"; $config->db_port = ""; $config->db_user = "root"; $config->db_pass = "your-root-password"; $config->db_name = "opensips";
Save the file when you are finished.
By default, Opensips-CP will save the password in plain text. If you don't want the password in plain text format, then edit
local.inc.php file and update the value of
$config->passwd_mode from 0 to 1.
sudo nano /var/www/html/opensips/config/tools/users/user_management/local.inc.php
Change the following lines:
Save and close the file, then restart Apache and MySQL service:
sudo systemctl restart apache2 sudo systemctl restart mysql
It's time to access the Opensips-CP web interface.
Open your web browser and type the URL
http://your-server-ip/opensips. Login by using the default user name as
admin and password as
admin. Upon successful login, you will be redirected to the Opensips Control Panel.
Congratulations! You have successfully installed Opensips Control Panel on Ubuntu 16.04 server.
