Freepbx suggest me to run "Fwconsole reload --verbose" when I click on red button "Apply Config"

(Mastro) #1

Hi to all,

I’ve uploaded freebox modules but after reboot when I click on the red button “Apply config” the popup appear: “Unknown Error. Please Run: fwconsole reload --verbose”

So I go to console as root and the command success.

But it is annoing because evere time I make one modify through GUI I have to rerun the command in console.

any ideas?

Possible file permissions problem, what is the result of

 sudo -u asterisk fwconsole reload --verbose

If it is permissions, then you can usually resolve with

fwconsole chown

if I exec this command as root: [root@freepbx ~]# sudo -u asterisk fwconsole reload --verbose

I obtain this:

Reload Started
Unable to access the running directory (Permission denied). Changing to ‘/’ for compatibility.
Unable to access the running directory (Permission denied). Changing to ‘/’ for compatibility.
Unable to access the running directory (Permission denied). Changing to ‘/’ for compatibility.
Unable to access the running directory (Permission denied). Changing to ‘/’ for compatibility.
Reload Complete

so… I executed this: [root@freepbx ~]# fwconsole chown

and I obtained these:

Setting Permissions…
Setting base permissions…Done in 5 seconds
Setting specific permissions…

Finished setting permissions

Now, if I go back GUI and click again on red button “Apply Config” the problem remains :frowning:

Did you manually change any users/permissions?

Hi dude, i have the same problem since yesterday.
On Fryday everything was correct. What is the problem?

Probably there is a bug on some update!

I had a similar problem on a new installation of Freepbx15 a few days ago (“Unknown Error. Please Run: fwconsole reload --verbose”) that was not activated. After a regular module update and a system update (yum update), I got this error in the GUI, but was able to reload through fwconsole cli. I also saw on the fwconsole cli that the system is trying to set the LC_CTYPE system parameter with no luck upon reloading (fwconsole reload). I suspected that it was because one of the commercial module (probably the endpoint manager but I am not sure) and after a successful activation, I was able to apply the changes through the GUI.

I did not think that it was a bug at the time, but now I see that there is definitely a new system behavior on the modules repository and the Zend encryption system. probably due to the recent changes on the module repositories. @lgaetz, @mfredrickson would you mind take a look at that?

@danielf’s issue is due to EPM and resolved in Endpoint Manager versions v14.0.68.36, v15.0.39.37

I’m not sure if that also resolved your issue @mikele83, but glad its sorted.
