Reload failed because retrieve_conf encountered an error: 1

Got a fresh (manual) install of Asterisk 13 with Freepbx 10.0.6.

All was working fine until… :smile:

I went to Module Admin and did a bulk select (stupid idea!) on Standard Modules that weren’t installed by default…hit the install button…and ended up with a load of errors. I have uninstalled the System Firewall which seemed to cause most of them but still getting the error…

Reload failed because retrieve_conf encountered an error: 1

I’m not sure where else to look to get more info on this error. The Asterisk Logfiles don’t seem to show anything so I’m not sure what to do next. I’m sure it’ll require uninstalling one of the ‘Standard’ modules and possibly reinstalling it but not sure which one.

All help greatly appreciated.


Just ran a bash on retrieve_conf and got the following response…

Please update your modules and reload Asterisk by browsing to your server.

Not very helpful but that’s what it gave me! :slight_smile:


Ran ‘fwconsole debug’ at the console and it told me that Conferencing wasn’t installed yet the Module Admin page showed it was.

I uninstalled Conference from Module Admin and the error has now gone away. :smile:
