Unable to apply config after updating modules


Fresh install, and updating modules - when I apply config I get the following error

exit: 1
Unable to connect to remote asterisk (does /var/run/asterisk/asterisk.ctl exist?)
Exception: Unable to connect to Asterisk through the CLI in file /var/lib/asterisk/bin/retrieve_conf on line 30
Stack trace:

is asterisk running?
Is it running as root? (it shouldn’t be)


I do believe its running and not as root - I ran fwconsole chown

(TheJames) #4
asterisk -rx 'core stop now'
fwconsole start


Fixed, how did that happen so I can avoid. Also THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!

always start asterisk through fwconsole start.


Ever since, now whenever I try to check for updated modules it just spins forever - any ideas?


Do you have a content filter?

Maybe try setting:

“Use wget For Module Admin” to YES in Advanced Settings


still no luck :frowning:



Im still stuck on this one… its a mystery that it just spins…

Any ideas would be super appreciated!
