the database password is passw0rd and the location is localhost cd /usr/local/src/a2billing/DataBase/mysql-5. Install the AGI and Sound Files So that we can easily update the system when changes are made during this period of change./install-db. so that an update from the SVN will immediately reflect in your A2Billing install.a2billing. Install Database Note that for Piaf and FonicaPABX. change dbtype to mysql. .conf in /usr/local/src/a2billing/a2billing.net/svn/asterisk2billing/trunk/ /usr/local/src/a2billing copy a2billing. so these will have to be done by hand.conf to suit your installation.g.conf Edit a2billing. e.conf You should now have a database called mya2billing with over 70 tables in it.
