Next add a misc. destination under the tools menu in FreePBX
Click on tools, then find misc. destinations and click on it. In the Custom Destination field enter custom-meetme3,s,1
In the description you can enter what you like, I entered MeetMe
I left notes blank.
Click submit changes
Next go to the setup tab in FreePBX
Find and click on misc applications
Click on add misc application
In the description I entered MeetMe
in Feature code you can enter what you like, as long as it is not used by anything else, I entered 150
Feature status should be enabled
Under the destination section select Custom Applications:
And select the misc destination name you created above, in my case MeetMe
Click Submit Changes
I just ran though the steps you posted and got as far as “Find and click on misc applications”.
I installed the Custom Applications module and was able to create the Custom Destination no prob. However, i was unable to find the “misc applications” menu item on the FreePBX menu as described in the previous post.
I am running a TrixBox with FreePBX 2.4 on it. Is there another module I need?
Modifying FreePBX owned config files is not a good practice as it will get overwritten and you will loose your changes. The proper thing to do would be to put this code the extensions_custom.conf file where it really belongs. If you put it in that file it will not get overwritten in the future.
So, i poked around a bit more and realized that “Misc Applications” is a module that I hadn’t installed yet. So I did the following in my FreePBX 2.4:
Clicked PBX->PBX Settings
Selected the Tools tab and clicked Module Admin (which is actually available in both the Tools and Setup tabs.
Clicked the “Check for Updates Online” text at the top of the “Module Administration” window
Scrolled to the “Internal Options & Configuration” section and clicked on the “Misc Applications” item…
- this expanded an instance menu below the “Misc Application” selection
- there are two options (No Action / Download and Install)
Clicked the radio button next to “Download and Install”
Scrolled to the bottom of the window and clicked the “Process” button.
Acknownedged that I wanted to install
Performed the Reload
Viola… the Misc Application option appeared under the PBX Setting Setup tab.
I cannot get this meetme3 to work. I have followed the instructions and able to create custom-meetme3 (destination and application), but when i dial the feature code number, it’s just giving me deadair/silence. CLI is reporting me nothing is wrong, although it appears that it is not hitting my mysql.
I would appreciate if someone can confirm or help me out. Thanks in advance.
