I’m migrating a system from AsteriskNOW 2.0.2 (FreePBX 220.127.116.11, Asterisk 1.8.15) to FreePBX Distro 2.210.62-6 (also FreePBX 18.104.22.168, but Asterisk 22.214.171.124).
I read that I can use FreePBX Backup/Restore to back up my AsteriskNOW system and restore to the FreePBX Distro system as long as the FreePBX version numbers match. The FreePBX numbers match in these systems and yet when I do a Restore, it completely trashes FreePBX on the restored system. (If needed I can provide more detail on exactly how it trashes the restored system but I’m assuming the effect is well-known among those who have tried to backup/restore from/to different versions of FreePBX.)
I can back up AsteriskNOW 2.0.2 and restore to a different AsteriskNOW 2.0.2 installation and the restore works perfectly as best I can tell.
The big difference, of course, is that AsteriskNOW 2.0.2 is on CentOS 5.8 and FreePBX Distro 2.210.62-6 is on CentOS 6.2, but should that make that much of a difference as long as the FreePBX numbers match?
