Newbie Question!

I am currently going through Asterisk: the future… and I found that it seems that the custom extension I am making are not being updated.

Like say if I had in my extenions_custom file

I had:

exten => 123,1,Answer() exten => 123,n,Background()

then I changed it to:

exten => 123,1,Answer() exten => 123,n,Background(main-menu) exten => 123,n,WaitExten(15)

However, the main-menu message says “can’t find the extension” after 2 seconds as suppose to the 15 seconds I was expecting.

Does the custom extensions update themselves after I changed them in the file? or do I have to somehow update the pbx to it realizes that the extension has changed? Or am I misunderstanding something here?

Easiest thing to do is issue “dialplan reload” in the Asterisk CLI

You can also do “dialplan show my-context” replacing my-context with your context.

Thanks it worked :slight_smile:
