I was studying about how to use databases in Asterisk, accessing it from the dial plan. In my project, my dial plan will have to store simple data (ex: IP number, port number, device name, etc) in a persistent way, so that it will be possible to retrieve such information in future moments, still via dial plan.
For this case, I would like to know?
- What is the best choice for storing and retrieving simple data , with dial plan instructions: SQLite or the builtin database option? Consider that I’m worried about installation, configuration and use difficulties.
- Does Asterisk 13 come with SQLite ready for use or have I to install this database separately and configure it to be accessible in dial plan?
- Where can I find tutorials about using SQLite or the builtin database for storing simple that?
P.S.: I’m not interested in storing CDR data.
Any hint will be very helpful!
