Installation Guide

WombatDialer is best installed on a separate server on its own, but it can also run on the same server as Asterisk for smaller installations.


Automated installation using RPMs

If you run a RPM based Linux distro like CentOS, you can install WombatDialer automatically by issuing the following commands:

wget -P /etc/yum.repos.d http://yum.loway.ch/loway.repo

yum install wombat

Follow the on-screen instructions for initial database installation.
When done, connect to http://myserver.address:8080/wombat; you can login using as user demoadmin, password demo.

Manual installation

In order to install WombatDialer, you need a working servlet container and a MySQL server. A recent version of Apache Tomcat will do.

  1. Download the latest version of WombatDialer as a .tar.gz package.
  2. Unpack the file in your servlet containers's webapps directory and rename the folder to "wombat".
  3. Download the MySQL Connector/J jar file and add it under the WEB-INF/lib/ folder.
  4. Restart your servlet container.
  5. Connect to http://myserver.address:8080/wombat - you will be asked for the MySQL root password to create a local database.
  6. Login using as user demoadmin, password demo.

When done

The first thing you need to do is to have a look at the User Manual.
WombatDialer is a powerful product, but you need to understand its core concepts in order to use it effectively.

WombatDialer comes with a free 2-channel license that you are free to use as you wish - no strings attached. You can then purchase additional channels as you need them - though the best way to run a meaningful test is to request a free demo key to unlock the full potential of WombatDialer for 30 days.
