CDR not working on freepbx + centos 7 install

Just installed freepbx + centos 7 install as per:

Two problems so far. Unable to support commercial modules, I know the issues and am not too concerned about it.

But the second problem is I cant access cdr reports. In Asterisk Logs it reports the following:

[2016-01-04 10:29:40] VERBOSE[4702] loader.c: Reloading module ‘’ (ODBC resource)

Any help would be most welcome.

edit: Done a little digging and in odbcinst.ini there is reference to in the line Driver64 = /usr/lib64/ And on 32 bit system, not the one with the problem, exists but its in /usr/lib.

So is reference to this file incorrect or is the file missing, and how could I put this right??

The error you are having is with unixODBC. There is no driver for MYSQL. You’ll have to lookup how to fix that as it’s outside the scope of Asterisk and FreePBX.

Hi tm1000,

Also can connect to the database:

From Freepbx logs I get: WARNING[3540] func_cdr.c: CDR requires a value (CDR(variable)=value)

Also see several lines as follows:

[2016-01-05 18:14:14] VERBOSE[3527] asterisk.c: Remote UNIX connection
[2016-01-05 18:14:14] VERBOSE[3743] asterisk.c: Remote UNIX connection disconnected

That doesn’t mean anything. You need to figure out why ODBC is missing the driver.

That being the missing

Right, I run a yum update last night and on checking the folder /usr/lib64 the file is there, well sort of. This is whats there:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Jan 5 18:22 ->

is this implying that is pointing to

Update - cdr is now up and running. Thanks tm1000 for your help, you put me back on track.
