I’ve been into Asterisk with FreePBX for a couple years now and recently bumped into a new problem.
I broke 2 different systems running asterisk 22.214.171.124 under 2.7x and 2.8x by trying to do a live upgrade “from source” to Asterisk 1.6.2.current.
My OS of choice is Ubuntu 10.4lts.
The reason for the version upgrade was that I could not park or transfer a call after it had been parked once previously. That was because I had heard there was a bug somewhere in the 1.6.2.teen versions causing the problem.
I DO not have this problem with Asterisk 1.4x or recent 1.8x installs.
AnyWhoo,…after I downloaded the 126.96.36.199 source ran ./configure. make clean, make and make install my amportal startup was broken with “Asterisk ended with status 1”,…and it restarted asterisk perpetually.
I Googled the scenario and symptoms to death and ended up back here. Where I could find NO relevant posts.
The questions is What would break the “amportal start” after an Asterisk version upgrade from source?
Look at your log file in /var/log/asterisk, file is called full, it should list the error in there.
It could be two things:
- In /usr/lib/asterisk/modules you have an old module that was compiled with the previous Asterisk. Remove files that has a different date than most of the files in there.
- A faulty config file in /etc/asterisk.
My guess is number one.
Thank you soooo much Mikael!!!
I had outdated Digium FFA modules in said folder. Deleting them fixed it.
I seem to have been kind of shunned in these forums about a year ago on my questions and I vow to start answering more newbie questions like I did before the strange feeling of “black ball” in 2010.
As a footnote I did find the solution to the problem that caused me to do my live, version upgrades of Asterisk under FreePBX 2.7x.
I could NOT park a call that I had parked once before. Here is the fix I found with a lot of DEEP Googling that brought me back here.
A good old helping of RTFM has enlightened the solution to this issue. Adding the following entries to the features_general_custom.conf have enabled us to transfer and re-park calls:
parkedcalltransfers = caller
parkedcallreparking = caller
There are quite a few other options that can be configured but these made it work.
Hope this helps someone else!!
