Restore from FrePBX 2.10 breaks FreePBX 15

I have a FreePBX backup from a FreePBX 2.10 / Asterisk 1.8 system that was running on Ubuntu 12.04.

When I run the restore, there are a lot of errors spewed, and then FreePBX is broke on completion.

I cannot even use fwconsole

Hey Jared:

The “no such column: helptext on line 310 of file …” are non fatal and have to do with restoring feature codes from old versions. I have an internal ticket on that already, but 99% sure that’s not your issue.

Error on line 1153 looks familiar, review this thread: UPGRADE from (too) OLD ver to ver 14. How is that possible?

That resolved fwconsole.

On to the next thing.
Immediately after issuing he fwconsole reload I navigated to the dashboard and it walked me through the Firewall wizard again.

Upon completion of that, the console spits this out every minute.

Firewall service now starting.

Can't find 'firewall' user in /etc/asterisk/manager_additional.conf. Firewall m
onitoring broken! (Did you forget to click 'Reload'?)

Should be a simple fix with a reload or possible reinstall firewall module and reload.

That did resolve the firewall issue. But there were other problems related to not having a couple modules installed that needed data restored to. So I am doing it again. Will post any issues.

But I have a question, is there a switch (did not see any in the wiki) to restore but leave trunks deactivated? Or do I need to do that separately/manually before I reload after the restore?

Edit: by “that did resolve” I mean I had to fully remove and reinstall the firewall module to resolve the issue.

I don’t believe there is such a switch for legacy restore, but perhaps @kgupta1 knows for sure.

So same functional results.

  • Installed FreePBX 15 202002.
  • Updated all the things from ssh.
  • Opened the web interface and went through the wizards.
  • Rebooted.
  • uploaded the backup via scp.
  • ran the restore.
  • updated SQL to let fwconsole work again.
  • disabled the trunks.
  • reloaded freepbx.
  • deleted the firewall and reinstalled.
  • reloaded freepbx.
  • logged into GUI and went through firewall wizard again

System seems functional. Making a new post on potential “issues”

Restore with non-default AMPWEBROOT issue is marked as resolved in Framework v15.0.16.49.
