How to safely upgrade Asterisk

Dear All,

I am running FreePBX 2.9.x (Asterisk 1.6.2) … how to safely upgrade the Asterisk to 1.8.x?

please advise

thanks & regards

What kind of system is this? Did you install it from scratch? What OS?

I installed FreePBX from AsteriskNow Linux ISO, it already ran and now I want to upgrade Asterisk to 1.8.4…

hmmm now, I am looking for safe and fast way to upgrade the Asterisk to 1.8.4 …do you have any idea or suggestion?

thanks & regards

What version Asterisk is in the yum repository for Asterisk Now?

If it’s not 1.8.4 you need to download Asterisk from the and install it manually.

Hi… thanks … but after I upgraded it … The Asterisk Server Status was ERROR (RED)

the FreePBX notices:

Reload failed because retrieve_conf encountered an error: 1
