Freepbx does not add anything to my config files

am using freepbx-2.2.1 and asterisk-1.4.2 and trying to add extensions but no changes take effect in the configs though the freepbx shows that is has added an extension

Mysql must be running

Mysql is running and when i add an extension it is stored in the database but it is not accessible by my sip phone.

Run this

/var/lib/asterisk/bin/retrieve_conf

what happened.

You are clickin the red bar after you make changes and then the yes at the next prompt right…

Thx bubba your suggestions worked well for me rmy problem was that am running php5 and the script was calling php4 and and some unndeclared function so everything seems fine for now. Thx a great deal
