Problem: Can not connect to asterisk

Hi everyone, I am testing out FreePBX. I Installed distro 10.13.66 with asterisk 11 and was able to navigate around and see what the possibilities are. I turned off my machine and today when I turned it back on, I log in the GUI and I get a “Can not connect to Asterisk” message. I turned off iptables to ensure it’s not the issue. What can I look for to avoid this problem?


is asterisk running?

yes. blabla20characters.
