Twilio and OpenVbx and Appfog needed immediately

Cancelled

Job Description

We are looking to build a mulitentant pbx like grasshopper.com
below are the instructions what we are looking to do
Virtual PBX. It was insanely easy thanks to a few great tools:

Twilio
OpenVBX
AppFog.com
Here’s how you can do it too:

Create a shared cloud app on Appfog
This is the free tier. It’s just two of us, and it seems to be working great after a day. Your mileage may vary. They have a slick interface for setting up new apps.



You can clone the repo that gets created and drop OpenVBX in there.

Download OpenVBX
Check it out on github, or download from the site.

One thing we needed to do is remove the config.php from OpenVBX/config/.gitignore. Because the deploy process for phpfog uses git, you can’t ignore the config file.

Copy the OpenVBX files into the directory containing your cloned PHPFog app repo.

a simple git push should deploy the app.

Set up your Twilio account
You’ll need a Twilio account and the Account SID and Auth Token to get set up with OpenVBX.

You may also want to get your 800 number at this point. It’s only $2 a month.



Connect everything together
Follow the instructions on OpenVBX and put in your database info from PHP Fog, and your Twilio info.

Then, the cool stuff happens.

You can set up a flow for what should happen when people call your number.

Here’s ours:



We’re looking forward to hacking around and seeing what magic we can make our phone system do - including using Customer.io to trigger phone calls and text messages.
