Humbug setup instructions for Asterisk PBX

  1. Download the Humbug Plugin to your Asterisk PBX. For 64-bit systems, use a plugin available in our downloads section.
    									[root@asterisk]# wget http://analytics.humbuglabs.org/downloads/latest.rpm 
    									
  2. Install the RPM and run the configuration script.
    									[root@asterisk]# rpm -Uhv latest.rpm
    									[root@asterisk]# humbug-config.sh 
    									
  3. Run the humbug-setup utility and configure your API Key and Encryption Key at the prompt. If you are setting up more than one PBX, configure each with its own API Key.
    									[root@asterisk]# humbug-setup 
    									
  4. Reload your PBX configuration and start the Humbug plugin.
    									[root@asterisk]# asterisk -rx "core reload"
