amportal is the linux command that controls lots of features and scripts for FreePBX.  You can input the "amportal" commands from the Linux command prompt.  To access the command prompt, log-in to the machine where you install FreePBX/Asterisk using your "root" username and password.  Then type one of the following:

 

amportal restart- This is how FreePBX starts asterisk and any other processes it need.  You should always start and restart asterisk with the amportal command not the service asterisk or /etc/init.d/asterisk commands

[root@localhost ~]# amportal restart
Please wait...

amportal chown- This will change ownership of all files and directories that FreePBX needs to be owned by the apache user.

[root@localhost ~]# amportal chown
Please wait...

[root@localhost ~]# 

 

amportal a r- This will perform a reload of all the dialplan in Asterisk and all the modules in asterisk.  This is the same as pressing the "Apply Changes" button in the GUI of FreePBX

[root@localhost ~]# amportal a r
Please wait...
Successfully reloaded
[root@localhost ~]# 

 

amportal a u xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx- The amportal a u command will unlock the GUI login of FreePBX to let you into the FreePBX GUI without the username and password.  This is handy if you lost or misplaced your FreePBX GUI username or password and need to get into the GUI to change or setup a new user.  You need to replace the xxxxxxx with your PHP session ID.  Follow the steps below.

  • Bring up the main login page to FreePBX in your browser.  Such as http://192.168.0.2/admin
  • Do a "ctrl a" to highlight the whole page and look to the left center of the screen for some text.  This is your unique php session ID.  Copy this into your clipboard.
  • Go into the linux CLI and type the following command replacing the session ID below with your own.

    [root@localhost ~]# amportal a u ppnr8l1vle32s3q8b79s4n1sp7
    Please wait...
    session unlocked!
    [root@localhost ~]# 
  • Go refresh your browser page and it will log you in this one time automatically for you based on that php session ID. Now you can go add or change the FreePBX admin users.

 

amportal a m- This will log you into the mysql database as the FreePBX user automatically for you based on the username and password for MySQL in /etc/freepbx.conf

[root@localhost ~]# amportal a m
Please wait...
