im currently running asterisk 1.8 and would like to upgrade.
however im not running a freepbx distro, and the command “asterisk-version-switch” isnt available.
Once asterisk has been upgraded is there a way to update freepbx so it reconises the new asterisk version?
What Distro are you running?
So this is something you put together by hand?
I suppose so, as I installed all the packages separately.
Do you think its going to be possible to switch asterisk versions? or is my best option to create a separate server and start a fresh?
You need to compile Asterisk manually from source if you want to switch versions outside of the distro.
FreePBX will recognize the Asterisk version automatically.
