Retrieve_conf err 255 related to uncaught exception

I have a new FreePBX Distro (12.0.70) installed on CentOS 7 and on first use, modifying a simple setting (like the friendly name of the PBX from the advanced settings page), I get an error when clicking apply

PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught exception 'Exception' with message 'Tried to remove key noload from section modules, but that section doesn't exist' in /var/www/html/admin/libraries/BMO/ConfigFile.class.php:79

Can anyone suggest a resolution?

I’m gonna guess that there’s something wrong (or nonexistent) with your /etc/asterisk/modules.conf.

Check the permissions on the file and make sure it’s there.
