ERROR: Installing PlaySMS on Sangoma7 (centos+Freepbx+Asterisk))

Software: Sangoma7 with Freepbx & Asterisk
CENTOS version: Derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.5-0.11 (Source)
Server version: 5.5.60-MariaDB MariaDB Server
PHP v: PHP 5.6.40 (cli)

I’ve followed this tutorial - https://vexplains.com/install-playsms-server-on-centos-7/ - to install PlaySMS.

For all php (cli,gd, etc) requirements I’ve allways get “allready installed with phpxxxx-x-x-x version”

After setting up all directories (changin “/home/komodo” directory) and all the other steps, playsms doesn’t start.

Besides, Sangoma (FRPBX&AST) installed MariaDB automaticly, so I don’t know the root password to add playsms to MariaDB and can’t add root user either.

When I do playsmsd check

PLAYSMSD_CONF = /etc/playsmsd.conf
PLAYSMS_PATH = /var/www/html/playsms
PLAYSMS_LIB = /usr/lib/playsms
PLAYSMS_BIN = /usr/bin/playsms
PLAYSMS_LOG = /var/log/playsms
DAEMON_SLEEP = 1
ERROR_REPORTING = E_ALL ^ (E_NOTICE | E_WARNING)
IS_RUNNING =
PIDS schedule =
PIDS ratesmsd =
PIDS dlrssmsd =
PIDS recvsmsd =
PIDS sendsmsd =

And if I try to start “playsmsd start” it gives

What am I missing?

Already tried to check /var/log/playsms but it’s empty

Any sugestions please?

Hi,

I’ll write howto install playSMS 1.4.3 on CentOS 7 tonight.

Please do not use any playSMS below version 1.4.3.

Ok!

Thank you very much for your help!

Best Regards

gonna need 1 more day to finish up my article, turns out installing LAMP and https on CentOS 7 were taking too much time, installing playSMS it self was like a minute or so

but looking at your OP above, you need to have access to MariaDB, you need to be able to create database that will be used by playSMS

Let’s continue playSMS 1.4.3 installation on CentOS 7 here instead:

komodo is just an example, you can use your own username, but keep up with the article (change all komodo into your own username).

You have to use a normal user, not root , because its dangerous (https://github.com/TheeBlind/CVE-2018-18387).

Ok. So, lets start by checking your installation. Can you browse playSMS ? Can you login to your playSMS from web ?
