Help with installation/upgrading Freepbx

Install from USB Drive trys to install on USB drive

DBehl's picture

I am trying to install FreePBX using a USB drive. It starts fine asking for the ethernet info and then downloads the image2.

I then get a screen saying it ran out of space and could not continue.

The USB drive was overritten.

I am Linux impaired so I am not sure how to change the install.

If I create a CD install it will work but the actual hardware I will be using will not have a CD drive.

Based upon the installtion instructions the USB install should work.

Thanks for any help.



Config Edit

R_Henry's picture

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.




Unable to connect to remote asterisk (does /var/run/asterisk/asterisk.ctl exist?)

mickp's picture

I'm able to install FreePBX and Asterisk and it works, but then when I reboot my computer I get the above error. I get no errors in the /var/log/asterisk folder.

I can reinstall Asterisk and run install_amp and it works again, but not after a reboot. I'm on Ubuntu Natty, using apt-get to install Asterisk.

The following is what I get when I type asterisk -c.

Any ideas?

Proper way to do asterisk version upgrade under FreePBX 2.7 or later

mwilson75's picture

I've been into Asterisk with FreePBX for a couple years now and recently bumped into a new problem.

I broke 2 different systems running asterisk under 2.7x and 2.8x by trying to do a live upgrade "from source" to Asterisk 1.6.2.current.

My OS of choice is Ubuntu 10.4lts.

The reason for the version upgrade was that I could not park or transfer a call after it had been parked once previously. That was because I had heard there was a bug somewhere in the 1.6.2.teen versions causing the problem.

I DO not have this problem with Asterisk 1.4x or recent 1.8x installs.


Inbound route not working

Hello, I'm missing something basic so I'm looking for some help.

This is a new install of AsteriskNOW (Asterisk with FreePBX upgraded to The inbound lines are 8 analog and 4 SIP. Right now I have a ZAP g0 for the analog 1-8 channels with no DID defined. Calls come in fine and hit an IVR. I want to add a new Inbound Route to send a specific analog line to a Ring Group (basically the office's back line) and bypass the IVR.

HWADDR not sticking

I have two network cards in my installation on two subnets so that I can separate the Voip on a separate DSL line.

The install has gone very well, but I have one small issue that I can't clear up.

I have added the HWADDR in System Admin -> Network settings, but when I save it comes back with a blank input box. I have tried to manually put the into the relevant ifcfg-ethx, but if I want to use the web config page, it overwrites my settings and I would like not to leave this ticking bomb for someone else.


2.9 final or 2.9 beta upgrade?

ron.barrett's picture

I am running FreePBX 2.8 and I've used installed the 2.9 Upgrade Tool from Module Admin. The 2.9 Upgrade tool indicates that it is "Upgrade Tool 2.8.0beta1.0." When I install it, the "2.9 Upgrade Tool" hyperlink appears as expected in the Admin section on the left side of the screen, but when I click on that link, it generates a web page that has in big red letters, "WARNING - YOU WILL BE UPGRADED TO VERSION 2.9.0 Beta".
