How to check the current FreePBX Distro version

You can check your current version by going to the sysadmin module or from the Linux CLI do a: 

cat /etc/asterisk/freepbxdistro-version on older systems and

cat /etc/schmooze/pbx-version on newer systems

Option 1: Manual upgrade using version upgrade scripts

The upgrade scripts will stop Asterisk and may also require a system reboot to fully apply. Perform the system upgrade using a scheduled maintenance window.

Check the current FreePBX Distro version

Cat the current version file (as above) to confirm the current installed version of FreePBX Distro.

Download and run upgrade script

To install an update script via the Linux CLI, use the following commands, substituting the proper scripts from above. Download the upgrade script matching the current version of FreePBX Distro installed, mark it as executable and run it.

cd ~
mkdir upgradescripts
cd upgradescripts
chmod +x

The Distro upgrade script will update both FreePBX components (Asterisk, the FreePBX web GUI) and all base CentOS components. Note any special instructions displayed at the end of the upgrade if any are displayed.

Confirm the new FreePBX Distro version

Cat the updated (now current) version file (as above) to confirm the current installed version of FreePBX Distro is the expected newer version.

Option 2: Upgrade using commercial System Administration Pro module

If you have sysadmin module installed and have also purchased the SysAdmin Pro commercial license for the sysadmin module, you can use either the FreePBX web GUI to perform an update or run the following script from the command line to auto-update your system to the latest version.

Resolving OS configuration file changes

Some upgrade scripts will result in .rpm package updates that need configuration files to be manually cleaned up afterwards. The general procedure is described in the page Cleaning up files from a RPM update.
