GUI Password Configs

Hi all,

We’re running FreePBX on Asterisk with Centos 5.1 (2.6.18-238.12.1.el5) 64 bit as origionally installed via AsteriskNOW and updated during the last few months via the FreePBX GUI and YUM. System is currently up to date.

Extracting specific call recordings (i.e. based on dialled number)for playback is problematic at present. Though each extension can log in fine and view their respective voicemail and call monitor data, recordings cannot be played back or even downloaded via the web interface.

1.) Neither can we accomplish this via the “admin” account, as we cannot log in with this account set within /var/www/html/recordings/includes/main.config.php under:
$ARI_ADMIN_PASSWORD = “3nt3rbj17”;
2.) Neither by assigning “admin” rights to specific other “admin” extensions within /var/www/html/recordings/includes/main.config.php under:

Some additional info :-
$ARI_DEFAULT_ADMIN_PAGE = “callmonitor”;
$ARI_DEFAULT_USER_PAGE = “voicemail”;


AUTHTYPE=database within /etc/amportal.conf

Can anyone please add some light on this issue ?

My understanding is that all the relevent User GUI login info is within /etc/amportal.conf : i.e.

The FreePBX GUI admin / password is defined within /etc/amportal.conf under:

AND /etc/asterisk/manger.conf under:
secret = secretGUI

The FOP (Flash Operator Panel) password is defined within /etc/amportal.conf under:

The Voicemail & Recordings (ARI) is defined within /etc/amportal.conf under:


Under Tools -> Advanced Settings enable “Display Readonly Settings”

Under “System Setup” there was no entry within “User Portal Admin Username”

entered “admin” and could log on as admin.

However, still cannot playback any of the recordings …
