When going to admin - Isymphony - Status says:

Failed to contact the iSymphony server.
Verify that your iSymphony server is installed and running and that the server API host and port are correct in the fields below.
If you have SSL enabled below and are using the SSL port for the API connection you need to enable SSL in the iSymphony server’s security.xml file for the communication_manager servlet

Cli command to restart:

[[email protected] ~]# service isymphony restart
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl restart isymphony.service

  1. “fopen(/var/spool/asterisk/cxpanel/modify.log): failed to open stream: No such file or directory”

Check to see if the cxpanel directory exists. If it does, then check the permissions.

Also, I’m not sure that starting iSymphony through anything but fwconsole can cause a permissions problem all by itself. Starting it with systemd doesn’t seem consistent with the rest of the environment.

Your problem with SSL may or may not be part of this (fix the file existence and permissions first) but it if is part of the issue, you’ll need to get some support from the iSymphony guys (starting with including @isymphony on the thread).

this is not the service name. Use:

service iSymphonyServerV3 start|stop|status

Thank you. I realized that later…

However, I found a post from 2017 that had the fix.

Needed to run: yum install iSymphonyServerV3-fpbx

The post was actually from you Igaetz.

It seems to be working now without the additional steps in your post. Do you think I need to dig into this further?

I haven’t actually logged into iSymphony yet, but I am able to pull up the login interface. I also purchased the licences and they successfully activated.


If the service is running, the remaining steps are not necessary.
