Okay, this seems open still, so I have a few more questions. To make sure my system doesn’t break, I would probably restore it to a different VM, and try the upgrade, to see if everything is functional, preserving my old system just in case.
I did do a test restore of my system from bare metal, just to make sure that worked, and it did. I brought down the main FreePBX system, because it had the same IP, since the backup is an exact clone. The one thing I did notice, was that FreePBX reconized it was on different hardware, and as a result, it said I had to register the system…so my question is, what’s the best way to tackle a restore like that to a new VM, should I:
A. Register it as a different system under new hardware? I also paid for modules, would I have to buy a license for another set of modules since this is technically “Different” Vm hardware? I bought the starter bundle https://www.freepbx.org/add-ons/
I guess I don’t know any other options, if you are following what I am saying, how do I deal with the registration of a hot spare, that is an exact clone? Especially if I want to test updates?
As well, if all these updates go well, are these the best upgrade instructions:
Lastly, I know that chan_sip is gong to the wayside. My PBX was installed, before I realized this transition was happening, as a result ALL of my extensions are chan_sip, I have had ZERO issues with that so far, but I know at some point I’ll have to cross the bridge. Can I safely upgrade to FreePBX 15, and then cross the Chan_sip to pjSIP conversation after that upgrade?
Does anyone have a really good conversion method for that, I saw a script that some people used, is there a tried and true conversion method?
