Hopefully I can get help here - If this is in the wrong place, please place it correct location.
I have a server running FreePBX 18.104.22.168 - its only has somthing like 10 extns and 5 trunks. Handsets are litterly in UK, Wales, Germany and my home (server is in my house)
I have just installed (with NO wizards run yet, I don’t even know its IP LOL) a new machine
I need to move my current working installation to a new server.
I have NO CLUE how this is done, I never installed this system and the person that did is no longer with us. - I’ve learnt loads since but am by far no expert in the field. I am not scared of getting my hands dirty lol…
Could someone be kind enough to write me a step-by-step routine how to migrate over to another hardware so that I can shut the old box down please? - I have full access to everything
We’ve paid for two modules too
It talks about activations and de-activations and only having two shots at it (Zend resets?)
All advice would be magic and I thank you in advance
Thank you -
My reason to swap boxes was to save some electricity on server use by using a smaller machine.
So, I’ve successfully managed it all BUT there were two issues which meant (due to time constraints) that I needed to re-activate my old box.
Issue one (Main issue)
As soon as everything migrated over and looked fine, I changed the IP over to the one used by the clients and expected to see the phones connect. Instead, looking at the live information I could see the handsets trying to connect BUT the error was “could not find endpoint” - I have generic handsets with IP, Username and passwords. No endpoint management in place. - Not one extension connected.
I have one extension with a VPN - There was no interface showing for this, BUT I think my friend could have fixed that for me, so less of an issue.
