Introduction

If you want to get your hands dirty with 3CX on Linux, we recommend you use virtualization software to create a virtual instance on your Windows or Mac machine. There are several virtualization softwares out there, but a widely used and completely free option is that of Virtualbox. You can download the latest version at https://www.virtualbox.org/.

Downloading the ISO image

Once your environment is “ready for Linux” you can proceed to download Debian for 3CX. If you wish to install 3CX on a plain vanilla Debian this is possible too, just a few extra steps are required. For the purpose of this document we will focus on Debian for 3CX as a number of extra steps have been removed in this distribution and the installation script is launched automatically. Debian for 3CX is ONLY available for 64 bit systems and can be downloaded here:  

http://downloads.3cx.com/downloads/3cxpbxiso/debian-8.6.0-amd64-netinst-3cx.iso

Creating a new Virtualbox Instance

You now need to fire up a new virtual instance and point it to the ISO image you just downloaded:

 

  1. Select New and enter a name
  2. Select Linux and Debian 64 bit as Type and version
  3. Accept the memory defaults (1 GB RAM)
  4. Choose Virtualbox disk image as Hard Disk File Type
  5. Select Dynamic and accept default size (8 GB) or increase to 20 GB if your hard disk permits
  6. Hit Create! You now have an instance ready to which you can install Debian for 3CX
  7. Next you need to configure the storage to be the ISO you just downloaded.
  1. Right click on the machine, select Settings
  2. Go to Storage
  3. Click on the little CD icon of the IDE controller, browse to downloaded ISO. Click OK.

8. You are now ready to run the installation! Hit the start button! The machine will boot up and ask to install 3CX. For step by step instructions, read this document.
