Reload failed because retrieve_conf encountered an error: 255

While using the upgrade tool Elastix and PBXinaFlash to FreePBX Distro Conversion Tool

I get the following error when hitting the Apply Config button after the tool has sent the configs over to the new system:

exit: 255
Unable to continue. Inbound Route / does not have a valid destination in /var/www/html/admin/modules/core/ on line 1410
#0 /var/www/html/admin/libraries/BMO/DialplanHooks.class.php(95): core_do_get_config(‘asterisk’)
#1 /var/lib/asterisk/bin/retrieve_conf(864): FreePBX\DialplanHooks->processHooks(‘asterisk’, Array)
#2 {main}

Dashboard shows Reload failed because retrieve_conf encountered an error: 255

The donor system is FreePBX and the new host is FreePBX

Would one of you more knowledgeable folks please point me in the right direction? Am I missing something?


Error says it all. Check all your inbound routes, one or more has a bad dest.

Thanks Lorne. I had tried that in a prior build, but I think I got googled off the right path and tried that last. I’ll take another look doing route triage first. Thank you.

Edit: There was one default route in there with no destination. It was the ANY route which was not pointed anywhere. Killed it off and reapplied with success! Thanks again!

One other question, if I may. I am doing this move to allow pjsip connections with flowroute, as the Nevada POP is going dark on June 11, 2020. The other edge servers don’t allow sip/chan_sip so I need to connect some other way. I was thinking pjsip.

As the pjsip trunk tab was not available, I started looking into why. I noticed that the FreePBX V12 machine could be set to BOTH for a SIP driver.

So my question is, if I change

SIP channel driver from “chan_sip” to “both”, leave the extensions on chan_sip, and set up trunks for pjsip, will this work? In other words, will chan_sip talk with pjsip?

The Trunk and extensions do not have to use the same technology.

Thank you!

… and will not use the same UDP port.
