AsteriskNOW-1.5.0-i386-1of1.iso Default Installation Problem

I just installed Asterisk from AsteriskNOW-1.5.0-i386-1of1.iso and I ignored the 2 problems which are;

  1. Reload failed because retrieve_conf encountered an error: 1
  2. Failed to connect to the Asterisk manager through port: 5038
    because I had no idea about these issues…

You can see the default opening page of freepbx sreenshot;

Then, added the sip extension and configured the ekiga(softphone) to connect asterisk server to check if it is working or not. At the end of the day I was not able to interact ekiga phone with my asterisk server. Then I tired to check my configuration via CLI of asterisk but I could not see the sip command. When I added sip.conf to /etc/asterisk directory and restart asterisk, sip command appeared in the asterisk CLI. But when I executed “sip show users” I could not see any entry. I think there is more than one problem with AsteriskNOW-1.5.0 iso.

Most of the people says this problem dissapear when you upgrade/update. What Do I need to update/upgrade and How can I do this ?

Thanks in advance …

By the way, currently I have no new update in the Module Administration tab . It seems everything is the latest version.
