FreePBX 13 - Updating Asterisk beyond 13.18?

(Timothy Larrea) #1

PBX Firmware: 10.13.66-21
Asterisk: 13.17

Currently having an issue that is result of a bug as detailed

As best I can tell, the fix found at was included from Asterisk 13.21 and on, but the upgrade scripts listed at only take Asterisk to 13.18. Is there a way to upgrade beyond that to address this bug?

The current version of Asterisk13 on the 10.13 Distro is 13.23.1. That is the version you should get if you update.

Hi Lorne,

How do I update to that version? the scripts I mentioned seem to only go up to 13.18? Or am I misunderstanding something? Do I simply run the script that matches my current version and it will take me to the most current version of Asterisk available?


yum update

after running update to 10.13.66-22 and then trying yum update as well, I am still on Asterisk 13.17

yum update tells me there are no packages needing update.

PBX-Server*CLI> core show version
Asterisk 13.17.0 built by mockbuild @ on a x86_64 running Linux on 2017-07-27 17:42:42 UTC


Not sure what to tell you. I upgraded it with yum. Maybe because I’m on Centos 32bit, but I guess both architectures got the same version.

yum repolist gives me the following, wondering if perhaps I am using wrong repos or something weird?

[root@PBX-Server ~]# yum repolist
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, kmod

Ok, when I run yum list asterisk13* I see the following:

Installed Packages
asterisk13.x86_64 13.23.1-1.shmz65.1.204 @pbx

That seems to indicate that as Lorne stated, v 13.23.1 is installed.

However when I look at the GUI under Reports > Asterisk Info, i get the following:

This page supplies various information about Asterisk
Current Asterisk Version: 13.17.0

And running “asterisk -r > core show version” gives me 13.17 as well.

Is there something super obvious like restarting asterisk that I need to do for the running version to change over?

Yes, you must restart post upgrade:

fwconsole restart
