We ran a test install on Fedora of FreePBX, and now we’re getting ready to move it to a production environment that will be running CentOS. I no longer have access to the GUI of FreePBX. What’s the best way to backup our routes, IVR, etc and migrate them over?
Install the same freepbx, asterisk, dahdi and libpri on the new machine. Make an empty backup of this installation from the gui and then just copy over the asterisk mysql folder from the first machine to the new one. Don’t forget to have the same privileges or else nothing will work. Try it first on a vm to see how it is done. Then just login in your box, go to an extension press submit and apply. The last step is essential because just copying the folder is not enough, you need to apply to create the asterisk conf file.
