Asterisk not ruuning

Came in yesterday to my phones not registered and my box saying Asterisk not running in red in the top corner.

Nothing has been changed or altered with for a lone time, system does have automatic updates via system manager, has there been any updates in the last couple of days ?

Just done reboot number 6 and its back up

If you didn’t do anything to the system but reboot it 6 times, I’d start with copying everything on the system to a new hard drive. This sounds “hard drivey” to me. Other hardware problems could cause it too, but the stuff on the hard drive is a lot harder to replace than a bad RAM stick.

Did think about the hard drive, going to copy everything of it.

But thinking i might try another distro, as always had problems with the sangoma a200 card.

I’d proceed with the drive backup, just to be safe.

If you’re going to switch distros, you should use the FreePBX distro, just so you’re using the same software as all of us.

Iam already using FreePBX distro 13.0.191.11
