Not an issue. I decided to use the supported FreePBX AMI in AWS instead of building out my own.
Fresh manual install of FreePBX 22.214.171.124 on CentOS 7. Everything looked beautiful but I noticed this error in the logs: “Connection attmempt to AMI failed”
I read that the password from /etc/amportal.conf may not match that which is in the MySQL DB, but I checked both and they match.
