I’m running latest 64 bit distro. Freepbx 2.10 Asterisk 1.8
Upon attempting an “apply config” i get the following
Reload failed because retrieve_conf encountered an error: 1
[FATAL] Unable to connect to Asterisk Manager from /var/lib/asterisk/bin/retrieve_conf, aborting
Dashboard Shows Asterisk Red. (also for some reason shows ssh yellow, yet i can connect to the box using ssh over port 22)
I waited till after hours, did a server reboot hoping to get lucky and same result. I began scouring forums, and after finding much seemingly outdated information, I came upon this thread.
I get from that Freepbx is trying to connect to the AMI with a different password than what’s in manager.conf
But i haven’t attempted to change any password, nor have i updated any modules (though i did update the framework to the final 126.96.36.199 from rc1 in hopes it would resolve the issue)
The ami password in amportal.conf manager.conf, and advanced settings hidden settings are all “amp111” which was set by the distro at time of install.
Asterisk manager host is localhost and port 5038, which i can connect to.
Bind address in manager.conf is 0.0.0.0 (default)
i tried changing it to 127.0.0.1 with no change
i have ensured selinux is disabled.
What could have caused this?
