FreePBX 11 and OpenVXI


I would like to install OpenVXI on my freePBX server.

I have downloaded and unzipped the X64 version available here:

I have run the “” script which outputs:

Current Asterisk : '11.10.2.'
Module found:
Asterisk 11.10.2 installed.
--- VXIasterisk V10.0 Installation ---
Creating directories...

Installing configuration files...
Installing libraries...
Installing app vxml for asterisk 11...
Installing sounds...
Installing grammars...
--- VXIasterisk V10.0 installation has finished ---

OpenVXI is up and running:

~]# /etc/init.d/openvxi status
openvxi (pid 1390) en cours d'exécution...

~]# ps aux | grep open

But when I go to the asterisk CLI, I don’t have access to VXML command:

localhost*CLI> vxml
No such command 'vxml' (type 'core show help vxml' for other possible commands)

I have restarted asterisk and the entire server but it doesn’t change.

Any hints ?

Do you read ?

*CLI> help vxml

Thank you for your reply.
I do have read the doc, and every command related to VXML in asterisk CLI fails:

asterisk -r

Short answer is you did something wrong. Time to crack open “” and see what it does…

Also look in the full log to see if it may be failing to load.

It is a fresh install of FreePBX, here are the logs about “error” on a reboot of asterisk:

Nothing related to OpenVXI:
grep -i vxi /var/log/asterisk/full ==> nothing
grep -i vxml /var/log/asterisk/full ==> nothing

I can’t see where I did the mistake…


I just pulled this down to look at it and

Ok so what they are doing should be illegal in 56 states and 90001 countries.

You should NEVER just slap compiled binaries in like you own the place EVER

After seeing what they do I would simply assume Asterisk is now broken…
