Reload does not reload

I’ve upgraded from Trixbox to PBXinaFlash and I have the following problem.
Every time I make a change to the dial plan, extensions, outbound routes, etc, and I click on the “Apply configuration changes” and reload, the system seems like it’s reloading (I can see this via a ssh window) but changes are not applied.
If I issue the reload command via CLI, it also shows like it’s reloading, but changes are not applied

I’ve tried everything I could think of, but, simply, Reload does not reload.

Any expert who could help me?


run /var/lib/asterisk/bin/retrieve_conf from the Linux command line, as user asterisk and see what it tells you.

Any clue?

according to that output, your auto generated conf files should have been updated with the new settings - there were no errors reported to the contrary.

That’s correct, no errors there, but my dial plan does not change if I change a route and reload the configuration.

I’ve deleted a route, reloaded and the call still uses the non-existent route. Same with Extensions-custom.conf, made a custom extension and does not get loaded.

That’s why I posted the issue.

Shall I reinstall everything from scratch?

I ran that command as root.

How do I log in as user asterisk? I don;t have a password for that user…

Would that show any different output?


It’s working now. I have changed extensions.conf to include extensions_custom.conf and something is not right there.

I’ll keep trying to make extensions_custom.conf work, but this post can be closed as it reloads OK now.
