Asterisk PHP

Please note: this library has significant threading problems. It is not recommended for production use.

Introduction

Asterisk PHP allows you to control the dial-plan and write applications for Asterisk in PHP. This is faster and more flexible than phpAGI.

Requirements

Asterisk PHP is known to work with Asterisk 1.0.6 to 1.0.9 and PHP 4.3 and 5 with zts enabled. Other versions may work.

Installation

A. Build and Install Asterisk as normal.
B. Build PHP with Asterisk support
	1. Copy source to sapi folder
		cp -R asterisk_php <path_to_php_source>/sapi/asterisk
	2. Rebuild PHP conf system.
		cd <path_to_php_source>
		buildconf --force
	3. Configure Asterisk into PHP.  A separate php installation is recommended.
		./configure <normal options> --with-asterisk=<path_to_asterisk> --prefix=/usr/local/php5 --enable-maintainer-zts
		or
		./configure <normal options> --with-asterisk=<path_to_asterisk> --prefix=/usr/local/php4 --enable-experimental-zts
		NOTE: do not compile PHP with any other SAPI (example apache).
	4. Build PHP
		make
	5. Install PHP
		make install
	7. Make sure the php library is configured in /etc/ld.so.conf.  Run ldconfig after editing /etc/ld.so.conf.
C. Configure Asterisk with PHP support.
	1. Add load => res_features.so to modules.conf
D. Test it.
	1. From the CLI: show application PHP
	2. Create /tmp/test.php (see test.php)
	3. Add to an extension:
		exten => 1234,1,PHP(/tmp/test.php|hello|world);
	4. Dial 1234
	5. Look at /tmp/test.php.out
E. Use it and report problems or feature requests.
