N00b to FreePBX - FAQs for converting from PBXiaf?

Should’ve given up on PBXiaf years ago, but have been eaking out several dozen boxes with various flavors of it to the point of exhaustion.

Is there a ‘go-to’ FAQ base for folks converting & installing FreePBX?

FreePBX Distro install wiki:
Today, I would install FreePBX 14 with Asterisk 16

Once installed, you can migrate the bulk of your settings using this script:

after migration, check into this thread for manual steps post migration: How to: Upgrade FreePBX13 to FreePBX14 on Hyper V - Guide

Many thanks for the fast response.

I’m curious - why FreePBX 14/A16 instead of FreePBX15/A16?

Just saying what I would do today.

again, why?

I’m not trying to pick a fight, but curious. is there an issue with FPBX15/A16 combination?

I don’t want to load up clients on a combination that’s going to back me/them into a corner in 6/9/18months.

FreePBX 15 went general release a few weeks ago so it’s a new product. 13 is not end of life yet, but nearing there. 14 is what I would setup today for a new system, others would use different versions and that is fine.

I see your concern now. That is a complaint for other distros. The FreePBX Distro always provides an upgrade path to current.
