Documentation: Installing

In using FreeSentral there are three components involved:


In a small configuration all these components are installed on the same machine. It is however possible to use different computers to improve performance. In this case you should perform the installation described below both on the Yate server and on the Web server. The database can be initialized remotely during either of these installs.

  1. Log on to your system or start a terminal console
