    Just as the install routine asks for a root password during the installation, could you adjust the routine to also prompt for the default passwords to both Elastix control panel and to FreePBX? It's scary how many Elastix boxes one can find through Google that are still using the default password... I'm sure some of it is because many folks don't use the unembedded FreePBX by default and don't realize that its just admin/admin to get in to EVERYTHING.

    Although my temptation is to suggest that the root password provided by the installer be the admin password for both Elastix and FreePBX, that's definitely the best security idea... if fact, it's kinda poor practice to use so many of the same password-- BUT it would be better than admin/admin, eh?
