I am running into a weird issue with my FreePBX installation.
I have FreePBX version 18.104.22.168, and I've been trying to change the asterisk manager password from the default of amp111.
I've changed the /etc/asterisk/manager.conf + /etc/amportal.conf files to reflect the new password. Also, the new password does not feature any symbols in it, just an alphanumeric password.
Once I change the two config files, I issue an 'amportal restart', and FreePBX complains that Asterisk if 'offline', and my devices/users become greyed out in the GUI itself.
If I change the two config files back to the default manager password, FreePBX comes back up all ok and happy.
Any ideas on why this occurs? Is there a third area this password needs to be changed?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
