FreePBX Notice

I’ve noticed an error in the FreePBX “Notices” area of the status page. It is complaining about a directory already existing – but I didn’t create the directory so it must’ve been created as part of the downloaded distro. So I don’t know what I should do – delete the folder?

/etc/asterisk/udptl.conf from core/etc (Already exists, not a link)
This can result in FATAL failures to your PBX. If the target file exists and not identical,
the symlink will not occur and you should rename the target file to allow the automatic sym link to occur and remove this error, unless this is an intentional customization.

Try doing expactky what the advice says. It tells you how to fix it.
Rename the offending file to something else…


I wanted to ask here first. Since I didn’t create it and I just set up the system, I figured that it was created in the distro. I was worried that I’d have bigger problems if I did get rid of it.

Anyway – after reading your reply, went to try and remove it. There is no filed called udptl.conf in /etc/asterisk. And I don’t know where this core/etc folder is to even look there.

Hit the red X next to the notice and you’ll never see it again

But that doesn’t get rid of the problem. I assume that it’s a problem – otherwise why is it even throwing this notice?

My reading of the help given is that it is not a problem “unless this is an intentional customization.”. Did you intentionally customize that file? from what you say, that would be a “No” so by logical deduction it would not be a problem for you to remove/rename that file, if you have already done that, or as you claim it was never there, then just delete that notice as suggested and stop worrying about it.

Ok thanks. I wasn’t sure what to make of it.
