Setup menu item gone

after i downloaded some new modules and updates for others all items under setup tab are gone except for system status, same for tools tab. Any ideas

I’m guessing here but based on you saying “after i downloaded some new modules” I’ll bet you have a third party module that is not compatible with your current FreePBX setup, It might have worked with the previous version you had but once you updated it no longer does.

That is one known problem with third party modules, you need to verify that they work with the new upgrade before going to them.

To fix your issue and get FreePBX working properly disable the third party module(s) and all the normal FreePBX selections should come back.
