Brand new installation of FreePBX/AsteriskNOW v.1.5.0 32-bit, downloaded from http://dl.digium.com/load_balance.php?q=AsteriskNOW-1.5.0-i386-1of1.iso
CentOS 5.3 (Final)
The web GUI shows error “Default Asterisk Manager password used”.
I found this thread: http://www.freepbx.org/support/documentation/faq/changing-the-asterisk-manager-password
However, the procedure described there is outdated, because it only applies if the authentication is stored in files etc/amportal.conf and etc/asterisk/manager.conf , while the FreePBX v.2.5 stores the authentication in the database. Extract of amportal.conf:
AUTHTYPE: authentication type to use for web admin
If type set to ‘database’, the primary AMP admin credentials will be the AMPDBUSER/AMPDBPASS above
valid: none, database
What is the proper way to change the default Asterisk Manager password in this case?
