Fresh Installation, unable to access control panel

Good evening,

I have been trying to get this working the whole day, and have finally given up, and am asking for some help :slight_smile:

I have undertaken a fresh installation of Asterisk:
Asterisk 11.3.0, Copyright © 1999 - 2012 Digium, Inc…
Connected to Asterisk 11.3.0 currently running on ns1 (pid = 570)

I have then followed your installation instructions as per:

I am running the latest version of Ubuntu with all updates available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
Release: 12.04
Codename: precise

The problem I am experiencing is that I just receive a blank screen when trying to access an of the directories. e.g. http://hostname/freepbx/admin/config.php

I have checked the permissions on the web folder, and they are owned by asterisk.asterisk.

I have performed a chmod on /var/lib/php5 incase it was a session problem, but this did not help.

The only error I receive in apache2/error.log is:
File does not exist: /var/www/favicon.ico which is extremely helpful!

Any advice, or paths to now take would be very very much appreciated.

Kind Regards,


I receive the following when performing amportal a ma installall:

[FATAL] unknown type: [CONF_TYPE_FSELECT]

Trace Back:

and then when I use: amportal a reload

I get this:

Fetching FreePBX settings with gen_amp_conf.php…

Error(s) have occured, the following is the retrieve_conf output:
exit: 255
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function framework_set_extmap() in /var/lib/asterisk/bin/retrieve_conf on line 642

With asterisk 11 things a more complicated to install on 64 bit.
You have to:
./configure --libdir=/usr/lib64 && make menuselect

and before installing FreePBX you have to
sed -i “s_/usr/lib_/usr/lib64_” asterisk.conf install_amp libfreepbx.install.php

[email protected]:/var/lib/asterisk/bin# ./module_admin list

Well this is really as far as I can get. I hope someone out there has the answer for me. Many Thanks in advance!! Ian

Module Version Status

builtin Enabled
core Not Installed (Locally available)
framework Enabled

I am unable to install core, I am not 100% sure why. I have used module_admin to delete, download, and install the core, but with no luck, I get the same errors as above. I am not sure what to do next :s I have spent so many hours, it now seems pointless to give up and move onto something else.

Any advice would be really appreciated!!

Thanks in advance wonderful people.


I found where I can list all of the modules, I have manually installed all the modules I can. The outstanding ones are those that have “core” as a dependancy. Is it possible to install “core” manually?

Is anyone able to help? I’m really stuck here :((

You both need to reinstall framework. Then install core.
