Thank you for the input Carlo. The last few days I have been
trying to go the MySQL route and compile Asterisk. I was able to
successfully build and install Asterisk 1.6.2 along with the
Asterisk Add-ons, however I'm confused about how to run it. The
README says to use the command "asterisk -vvvc", but when I did
this the CLI command-line did not display. If I try to use
"asterisk -r" then I get the Unable to Connect error. Are Zaptel
and Libpri required to compile Asterisk? I did not have these
installed when I tried to do this. I actually tried to install
Zaptel, but I was getting an error that had something to do with
the incorrect version of the linux-grsec apk. I was hoping to get
a working Asterisk box before beginning the MySQL installation.

I'm going to continue in this direction for now, but I'm willing
to try your approach with Sqlite3. Did you have any luck with this
or did you also run into problems? This is all new to me so I
really appreciate the help. One more question: I ran into some
problems during the Asterisk installations when I was running
Alpine 1.9 inside VirtualBox. I would get a memory call trace
error after a make command. This didn't happen when I booted
Alpine without using a virtual machine. Any ideas why?
