FreePBX Beta 14/14 after startup a "fwconsole restart" nessesary

Hi Folks,

im runing FreePBX 14/14 Beta.

When ever I start up the server, I have to login via console (putty usually) and run the

“fwconsole restart”

command. It then tells me that everything was not runing, starts it up just fine, and voila the system is fine from then on, working like a charme.

What do I need to check why it dont start those dbs and services at startup?

Is there somewhere a “server online after startup” switch I may have changed unintentionally?

I run all module & system updates etc.

I once did run out of disc space during an update (due to miss configured backup) but I did go back to a clone Id made before the update and corrected backup config and resized the disc before restoring the clone.

Any hints?
Cheers Manne

Is this a distro install?

Yes, its right from the freepbx download section, I did choose 14/14 for install. w/o LVM.

I downloaded it somewhere end of January beginning February. details follow.

Also, it was not like this in the beginning.

It showed up periodically, then later became a permanent problem.


Turning off LVM can cause strange issues like what you are running into. It’s generally best to leave it enabled.

I would start from bash with:-

cat /proc/partitions



if it leaks that you are using LVM2 (whether you wanted to do that or not) , then we can work out your LVM2 problems

Thanks for trying to help me :slight_smile:

Heres the output:

for good measures I added df

I avoided LVM because I run this one in a VirtualBox VM and have no need vor LVM, it just adds a layer of complexity in case I have to or want to resize the HDD.

Thanks again.

PS: and honestly, I never made it to fully understand the exact ways of LVM, since I never had to tackle it with any other of my systems, so I kind of avoid LVM like the plague…
