Voicemail not recording

when people call and leave a message it cuts them off why ? how do I fix this problem ?

Check the permissions for the directory /var/spool/asterisk/voicemail. Make sure that the whole directory tree below is owned by user and group asterisk and that user asterisk has write access to everything.

Well first logon to the Linux command prompt as root.


cd /var/spool/asterisk
ls -ld voicemail

This should show you the permissions and owner of the voicemail directory. If it’s not owned by asterisk then:

chown -R asterisk:asterisk voicemail

If the permissions are not correct then:

chmod -R 644 voicemail

how do i access the /var/spool/asterisk/voicemail. it ?

I forgot the password how do I reset it ?

Boot into single user mode and use the passwd command.

Google ‘Centos root password recovery’

One would think Limuxman would know that.


You beat me to the answer…and comment!
