So I was having an issue with voicemail displaying the incorrect received time when viewing the voicemail details (shows 4/30/20 10:58). I saw where Malcolm had suggested to update DPMA to 1.7. So I started wondering if I was perhaps not on the latest version of DPMA. Dropped into my FreePBX via putty and did a quick check:
> digium_phones show version
Digium Phone Module for Asterisk Version 11.0_1.6.0
Ok, so I’m on version 1.6 it appears. What’s the best way to update to 1.7?
Thanks alan. I’ve been reading through the asterisk wiki on DPMA and I’m not sure if I’m looking at apples to apples. Am I reading my DPMA version correctly (saying that it’s version 1.6)? Current version of DPMA is 2.0 on the digium/asterisk site so I hate to assume I can simply move to that version but nothing says to the contrary. There doesn’t seem to be a mechanism to update via FreePBX like the other modules. Downloaded the file, extract to /usr/lib64/asterisk/modules/ and then do a module reload. I’m still not seeing it display a different version when I check. License status shows good. I’ve got to be missing something.
Thanks malcolm. Yeah, I stopped asterisk before attempting I just didn’t detail that bit. Thanks for the heads up. I always try to get a good snapshot prior to any attempt at anything outside the FreePBX gui as well just in case I muck up something. I’ll give this a go tonight.
