In attempting to restore from a previous FreePBX backup after a total reinstall of a system (clean install from ISO), I noted the following issues under FreePBX 2.9 (same version both before and after reinstall):
- Blacklist was not restored.
- In /tmp/freepbx_debug.log I kept seeing entries like
2011-Jul-26 15:11:33 /var/www/html/admin/modules/ivr/functions.inc.php:0
[WARNING]: fsockopen() expects parameter 2 to be long, string given
I only had two IVR's so I went to each and without changing anything I clicked Save and did an orange bar reload. That caused the log messages to stop.
- When using the Extension Settings module to view the status of extensions, none of the Follow-Mes were listed. I had to go into each Follow-Me individually and without changing anything, click "Submit Changes" and then at the end do an orange bar reload to get the Follow-Mes to appear. I do not know if this is indicative of a more serious issue or it's just a display problem in Extension Settings, but thought I'd at least mention it.
Other than the first issue, I cannot say with certainty that the problem was with the Backup & Restore module, but since these problems first appeared after the restore I felt they are worth mentioning.
