Manager Connection Problem

  1. 2 years ago

    Our FOP2 setup has been working fine without issues for years now. But just yesterday I started getting "Manager Connection Problem" message. The UI & buttons show up fine, but none of the call activity is shown. Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

    Seems like your Asterisk manager credentials have changed. If you use Elastix/FreePBX or any system that uses manager_custom.conf file, you can run this script to create a "fop2" manager user and configure everything automatically for you:

    cd /usr/src
    wget download.fop2.com/create_fop2_manager_user.pl
    chmod a+x create_fop2_manager_user.pl
    ./create_fop2_manager_user.pl
    service fop2 restart
  3. Thanks for the reply, when I ran the script I got "User 'fop2' already exists in Asterisk Manager configuration". Here's what my "manager_custom.conf" file looks like.

    then check your /usr/local/fop2/fop2.cfg file and be sure manager_user and manager_secret matches what you have defined in your custom file.

    Best regards,

  5. Hmmm yap that did the trick, thanks.
    I don't know how it was working all this time then, the files list modified date was in 2015.

    Where is the custom file located?
