Noob question, but a good one. (It's actually Linux related!)

Dale, have you considered FreePBX?  It's a complete web-based system
that manages Asterisk for you.  They've already solved this problem of
yours.  Not sure if it's available to add onto Ubuntu, though.  They
usually have their own distro (and repos) based on CentOS.  One big
downside to FreePBX is that you can't just tweak the config files
directly as FreePBX generates them.
