retrieve_conf failure

Hi,

I am trying to install FreePBX on my Debian Lenny installation with Asterisk 1.6
Unfortunately I don’t have all the modules running.
When I made a search I found that my retrieve_conf script is failing as in below output.

How can I solve this issue ?

Thanks

Looks like db connections problem.

Check if you can connect to asterisk* databases with user/pass supplied in /etc/amportal.conf (AMPDBUSER, AMPDBPASS)

router:~# grep AMPDBUSER /etc/amportal.conf
AMPDBUSER=asteriskuser

router:~# grep AMPDBPASS /etc/amportal.conf
AMPDBPASS=amp109

router:~# mysql -uasteriskuser asterisk -pamp109

Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 73

Type ‘help;’ or ‘\h’ for help. Type ‘\c’ to clear the buffer.

so it seems fine, no ?

this should be something easy. but what ?

yep, seems ok.
Actually it’s indicated above - Connecting to database…OK

You can make sure all tables in asterisk and asteriskcdrdb were imported properly (show_tables;)
Other than that it maybe something in Asterisk 1.6 as I’m using 1.4 and have this uninitialized variable errors

as well but FreePBX works

ok,…
Looks like I have the same error when running retrieve_conf.
And there was someone else complaining about this issue: http://www.freepbx.org/forum/freepbx/users/critical-error-cannot-write-queues-configurations

Looks like there’s problem with cdr (asteriskcdrdb database) only as data to asterisk table is written.

Here are the databases and tables that I currently have.
Do you see what’s missing ?

I need help about this. anyone ?

If you believe that this is because of Asterisk version etc. , I can change the version I am using.
Please let me know, so that I can proceed further.

Asterisk 1.6 is not released but listed as Beta. It’s really in Alpha testing and not ready for production. Please use latest Asterisk 1.4 instead.

If you had searched the forum pages before you posted you would have noticed several posting about asterisk 1.6 not working with FreePBX properly due it it’s alpha like state.
