Installing RPM repository and OpenSIPS server

1. Detect which OS/arch you are using.

  • Find distribution.
    • cat /etc/redhat-release : This command will give you an output like:
      Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.0 (Maipo)
      Fedora release 21 (Twenty One)
  • Find architecture.
    • uname -m : This command will give you an output like x86_64 or i686.
2. Install repository and OpenSIPS server.
  • Install the repository RPM.
    • Download corresponding repository RPM from "Repository RPMs" page.
    • Install the repo RPM. For example, if you downloaded OpenSIPS 2.4 repository RPM for EL7 x86_64, here is the command:
      yum localinstall opensips-yum-releases-2.4-1.el7.noarch.rpm
      (or rpm -i instead of yum localinstall for old distributives)
    • As alternative, you can install the package directly by using the repository RPM URL:
      yum install
      (or rpm -i instead of yum install for old distributives)
  • Install and start the OpenSIPS server.
    • Now, you can install OpenSIPS with single command:
      yum install opensips
    • Start the OpenSIPS server:
      systemctl start opensips - for systemd distributives
      service opensips start - for old distributives
    • If you want to start the OpenSIPS server every time on boot, run this:
      systemctl enable opensips - for systemd distributives
      chkconfig opensips on - for old distributives
3. Enjoy!
