Upgrading from FreePBX 10.13.66 to SNG7

Hi all,

I want to upgrade my FreePBX 10.13.166-22 to SNG7 Asterisk 14. Distro upgrade told me I’ve have i686 rpms installed and they need to be removed.

Can i remove this rpms? And is the mongodb-server required for FreePBX?


How are you trying to update? If your distro 13 is 32bits, which it seems it is, you can’t upgrade inline using the upgrader. You need to install distro 14 on a separate server and use the “donor server” script if you have licensed modules.

If you don’t have commercial modules, what you can do is install distro 13 64bit on another server, and restore a full backup of the 13 32bit on it. Then you can do an inline upgrade.

I’ve installed the rpm for distro upgrade: package1.sangoma.net/distro-upgrade-1807-2.sng7.noarch.rpm

after that i execut distro-update:

it is 64Bit.
uname -a hostname 2.6.32-642.6.2.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Oct 26 06:52:09 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

If you are using 64bit distro, then go ahead and delete the RPMs that the updater is telling you to uninstall.

But maybe someone from @sangoma can give more details, it seems strange that you have 32bit packages on a 64bit installation.

At the bottom of the upgrade page:

there is a script you can run post upgrade, and IIRC it will remove the offending rpms.
