Config Edit

I have searched yet I cannot find an answer.. I see that config edit is not a module in 2.9 FreePBX distro. Is there a way to add this. Seach the web points me to a 404 site.

Or, maybe my question should be can we still you config edit. Or is there another way that we should be modifying our conf files.

Just a little confused.

Modifying what config files?

Modifying what config files? Are you speaking of the files with "custom" in the file name located in /etc/asterisk?

I know trixbox had a web based editor that was awful. It mangled XML files for one thing.

I recommend to all users to take the hour and learn how to login to a command prompt and edit a file.

I do know how to log in and

I do know how to log in and edit a config file. That's not my issue or problem. I just liked the ease of the module config edit when makeing changes. Especially if you have done some extensive customization in your test system and want to do a simple copy and paste.

Also, with the extensive changes and use of the db backend can we edit these config files or is there another method. That I think was my origanl question.

And did you try to come off as sounding like a Pr*& or did I read your post wrong.

The Config Edit module was

The Config Edit module was maintained by Joe Roper at Fonicatec and it seems to have died on the vine for whatever reason. I don't know of anyplace else where it might be, although more information might be found over at the PBX-in-a-flash forums where Joe spends a lot of time.

I don't think the module was ever that popular within the community, and also don't remember the module ever being a source of issues.
