Deleted the monitor interface, can I get it back?

Hey everyone, not sure what the official name for this is but I’m referring to the monitor interface or the FreePBX portal for users, at http://asteriskurl/monitor where you log in and can view your voicemails, listen to recorded calls, change your follow me settings etc.

Anyway, I noticed the other day that all my recorded calls would play back all garbled. When users logged into the monitor portal it would say something about /var/asterisk/spool/ or something along those lines being full. I can’t remember the exact address but it was pointing to the directory where all the recorded calls are saved.

So I logged into WinSCP into that directory and just deleted everything. However now if I go to http://asteriskurl/monitor it says file not found. When I go to /var/www/html/ the /monitor directory is completely gone! I guess it was actually located in the previous folder but just shown as a shortcut or link? I only deleted everything because it looked like it was all .gsm files.

Is there a way I can reinstall the monitor application? Really need it back! Thanks!

Just tried that address you gave, says:

Not Found

The requested URL /menu.php was not found on this server.

Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) Server at Port 443

I’ll post in the elastix forum but I think I might just install elastix to a virtual machine and just see what the folder structure looked like since I should be able to just copy everything back hopefully!

What happens when you do:


and nothing else?

Omg I am the dumbest person alive! The URL is http://asteriskurl/RECORDINGS not /MONITOR! So stupid!!! Oh well at least it works oops!

Well, that looks like the one in PBX in a Flash, so I’m guessing it is a FreePBX thing. The address I gave you was where it appears in PiaF so maybe there was a symlink.

I’ll give that link a try. You’re right I’m running Elastix. I only posted here though because when you go to that site it says FreePBX User Portal or something along those lines. Here’s a screenshot of it:

I may be wrong, but I don’t think what you’re referring to is a part of a standard FreePBX install, because I’ve looked at the location you mentioned on two different boxes running FreePBX and it’s not there. If you are using a third-party distribution (such as AsteriskNOW, Elastix, PBX in a Flash, etc.) it might have been something installed with that package, and maybe you could get an answer in their forum or support channel.

Actually it would be nice to have a user mini-portal, provided that users could be allowed access to that only and not to other things they should not have access to.

Also, did you try going to http://your_server_address/menu.php?id=recordings ?? That might work on at least some systems.
