I recently upgraded my asterisk version, back in March, to 1.2.17. I updated freePBX at the same time. I only verified everything operational (making calls, sound, etc.) after making the update. Now over a month later, I go to add an extension and make changes to my dial plan and I find that changes in Free PBX are saved in the database, but not in the conf files.
I had also changed my manager and database user passwords per the instructions over a month ago as well.
I am able to connect to mysql with the passwords in the conf files.
I tried to run the free PBX update again with freshly downloaded files, and get these results: (2.2.1)
Checking for PEAR DB…OK
Checking for PEAR Console::Getopt…OK
Running module install.php and install.sql scripts
Checking for /etc/amportal.conf…OK
Connecting to database…FAILED
[FATAL] Cannot connect to database
Generating AMP configs…OK
Restarting Flash Operator Panel…OK
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
