I had posted this in another thread but realized I was probably posting incorrectly so posted fresh here. Sorry if that has caused any confusion.
I cannot get the Restore function in FreePBX v2.7 to restore anything I listed in the “Additional Files and Folders” text box.
I have the PBXiaf package - working like a charm - with FreePBX 2.7 and Asterisk 1.6
I fully configured my production system and then used the Backup and Restore in FreePBX with the hope of creating a cold-swap standby system (create an identical system and if the production server fails, unplug it, plug the new one in and voila).
So I created the production system, ran a full backup, including some additional folders (see below). I recreated the backup schedule on the standby system, transferred the .tar file from the production system to the /var/lib/asterisk/backups/ and ran a restore on the standby system.
This worked fine to create a duplicate setup for the base system on the standby server, but I had three additional folders
that I have files in that I also wanted restored.
When I ran the restore on the standby system, all the basic FreePBX configs were restored but none of the additional files/folders were restored.
