Correct update FreePBX to FreePBX 16


fwconsole ma list

Because Filestore isn’t available on FreePBX v13, as I stated a bit earlier. Trying to install it will just continue to fail.

Are you sure of that ? i think its exist filestore…

Backup/Restore was completely overhauled in FreePBX v15 which introduced the Filestore module. Legacy versions of Backup/Restore have the management of backups and storage options all under the same module. It’s even in the current documents and why there is a FreePBX 15+ document and a Legacy document.

Here is the legacy documentation for Backup/Restore:

I setup freepbx16 but i cant install all updates…

[root@1c-asterisk16 ~]# yum update
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, versionlock
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Could not retrieve mirrorlist$dist&staging=$staging error was
14: curl#7 - “Failed to connect to 2606:4700:10::6816:2096: Network is unreachable”

One of the configured repositories failed (Unknown),
and yum doesn’t have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only
safe thing yum can do is fail.

How to fix? i use only ipv4 in my network

what is showing cat /etc/resolv.conf ?

[root@1c-asterisk16 ~]# cat /etc/resolv.conf
; generated by /usr/sbin/dhclient-script
search testmy.dc

its my dns, and it work normal because update modules from web pbx work well

OK now do an ip addr and see if there is an IPv6 address on the system. You really can’t do AAAA lookups from an IPv4 address. So if this FQDN is returning an IPv6 destination, then you did an IPv6 AAAA lookup which, again, doesn’t happen over IPv4.

thanks it fixed.

So problem with FreePBX is continue.
How to make backup and transfer it to new server with FreePBX 16 ?

have you tried this?

From 4-5 years ago i have used. Maybe could be fix your data transfer from Old to new installed PBX.

That script is dead and no longer supported. It shouldn’t be used for this.

Thanks, Tom. It was good script.

Yes but it did what Backup/Restore does as of v15 so not really needed.

And what i can used for transfer all settings from pbx13 to 16 ?

The same thing you were told earlier in this thread. You create a FreePBX v16 box, you do a backup of the FreePBX v13 box, you do a Restore of the v13 backup on the v16 system.

@BlazeStudios Tom his PBX is old thats why we are looking some how to send backup from OLD PBX to New Installed PBX-16

It’s v13, the Backup/Restore will go all the way back to 2.10 or something like that. So I guess I’m missing how this isn’t working. v13 can let you take backups, is that part not working?
