Then I begin to receive Asterisk error

DO you have any idea what’s going on? I dint work on any modification or configuration of my system script. I just did a system reboot. Then the system not working anymore.

OMG… pls Help…

Thank you so much!!

OK, here’s what you try. It seems like Asterisk is spitting out errors with CDR

We will try to disable cdr first and see if this is the real issue or not.

do this, edit the file /etc/asterisk/modules.conf

Add this line right at the bottom
noload =>

Then stop and start asterisk.

Dear Sanjayws,

Thank you so much!! its work!! But may I know what is the error that caused this? Since you found the solutions for it.

Besides, is there any effect to my system since I noload cdr mysql?

Thank you soooo much!

Yes absolutely CDR wont work

Please share

  1. Content of your /etc/asterisk/cdr_mysql.conf (remove the passwords of course)
  2. The db called asteriskcdrdb
    mysqldump asteriskcdrdb --compact --no-data -u root -p (key in your root password if it does prompt)

also, for the heck of it, see if mysql is running

/etc/init.d/mysql status

let me know if you need more information.

Really thank you so much for your kind help.

You will need a password for freepbxuser, restore that file from your “last known good” backup

your command line attempts to log into mysql as [email protected] chances are there is no password for that account ubless yo set it.,

Hi yes, per dicko suggestion, remove the -p in the mysqldump command

/etc/init.d/mysql status

should be executed not copy pasted here.

Why did you post a copy of the init script?

I think hr meant
echo “cat /etc/init.d/mysqld status”|sed ‘s/(.) (.) (.*)/bash \2/’

Thank you for all above advices.

I am actually a newbiew for Asterisk and Linux, just start to use it few months ago. My friend who setup this is oversea which I had not idea how to do solve the issue. Thats why I dint know I actually can executed the init.d file.

I tried to remove the -p in the mysqldump command. This is what I get:-
[[email protected] ~]# mysqldump asteriskcdrdb --compact --no-data -u root
mysqldump: Got error: 145: Table ‘./asteriskcdrdb/cdr’ is marked as crashed and should be repaired when using LOCK TABLES

This system was setup not more than 3 months, so we dint do any backup yet. Thus, I cant restore any backup file.

Can anyone guide me step by step?? really sorry that I am still in learning step, need more details information.

Really appreaciate all your kind advices.

Two comments, have you heard of google yet, it will give you your answer to repairing your mysql in two seconds. Three months and no backup, you should be absolutely ashamed of yourself , start to do so immediately and continue regularly. :slight_smile:

HI Dicko,

Thank you for your comment and advices.

Just to be honest with you. If I know all those skills or I have all those knowledge. I wont doing those stupid staff. I really still not clear with whats going on with the system. All I know about this system is I can manage my phone system through web-browser interface to check my call logs, setup my queue, IVR and etc. I have no knowledge about the sql, command line and all thats. The person who setup this is one of my friend who is in oversea right now and I cant contact him. I had google my issue for many hours but still cant found the right solution.

Therefore, I really appreciate your kind advice and comment.
Once this issue solved I definitly will do all those backup.

Thank you.


Try this run
mysqlcheck -u root --check asteriskcdrdb

Then try run this
mysql -b -u root -D asteriskcdrdb -e “REPAIR TABLE cdr” -u root

Once repaired, restart mysql, run this
/etc/init.d/mysql restart

Now, show us this (in case the above still fails), run
mysqldump asteriskcdrdb --compact --no-data -u root

If you don’t encounter errors, remove the noload thingy as stated above, restart Asterisk so that it loads CDR. Make a test call and see if data is there.

Dear Sanjayws,

Thank you so much!!

You saved my day!!

It’s worked now.

Thank you. I will do the backup first and then check the voicemail issue later.
THank you… really appreciate for your advices and time.

Have a nice day.

sanjayws you save my… week.
Actually, I run out of disk space and that corrupted the CDR Database. Usually the database processor should notice that and stop processing more inserts (among other transactions) before corrupting but, mysql is not (in that sense) ‘industrial grade’.

mysql -b -u root -D asteriskcdrdb -e “REPAIR TABLE cdr” -p
Enter password:
| Table | Op | Msg_type | Msg_text |
| asteriskcdrdb.cdr | repair | info | Found block that points outside data file at 3649452 |
| asteriskcdrdb.cdr | repair | status | OK |
mysql -b -u root -D asteriskcdrdb -e “REPAIR TABLE cdr” -p
Enter password:
| Table | Op | Msg_type | Msg_text |
| asteriskcdrdb.cdr | repair | status | OK |

Thanks for your guidance… Saved a lots of time
