How to Check the Current FreePBX Distro Version

...

  • upgrade-6.12.65-14.sh
    • Delete the default package fail2ban configuration file. FreePBX Distro generates a customized version of this file.

      Code Block
      languagebash
      rm /etc/fail2ban/jail.local.rpmnew
    • MySQL activity logging to /var/log/mysql/mysql.log is disabled in this release. This MySQL log file can be quite large, depending on server usage loads. Delete this file after the update to reclaim this disk space.

      Code Block
      languagebash
      rm /var/log/mysql/mysql.log
  • upgrade-6.12.65-17.sh
    • Replace the old version of /etc/dahdi/modules with the updated version of the file

      Code Block
      mv /etc/dahdi/modules.rpmnew /etc/dahdi/modules
  • upgrade-10.13.66-1.sh
    • The upgrade to 10.13.66 requires the ability for the MySQL root user to login to the database without a password. This is the default case. This can be tested by running "mysql" as the OS root user and see if the login happens without any password prompt. If you have set a password for the MySQL root user, create a /root/.my.cnf to supply the password so MySQL can be accessed without a password prompt. Ensure this file is only readable by the root user as it will have the password in plain text. Do this before running the upgrade script.

      Code Block
      languagetext
      [client]
      user=root
      password=mysecret
      
      Code Block
      languagebash
      # set the file to be read/write for root only
      chmod 600 /root/.my.cnf
    • Consider switching to Asterisk ver. 13 with asterisk-version-switch. Asterisk ver. 13 is the recommended version to use, and some features (such as presence state) are not supported on Asterisk 11.
    • After completing the upgrade to 10.13.66-1, continue with applying subsequent updates to the 10.13.66 track at FreePBX-Distro-10.13.66 to get fully current
    • Disable and then uninstall and remove obsolete modules such as "FreePBX ARI Framework" (the old user web GUI) and "FreePBX FOP Framework" (the old Flash Operator Panel). Uninstalling the "FreePBX ARI Framework" is needed as the uninstall creates a Web forward from the HTTP .../recordings URL to send users to the new .../ucp (User Control Panel) URL.
    • Log into the new FreePBX 13 web GUI and address any warnings or notifications in the web GUI
