PBX stability and bug fixes, backup and restore and other usability improvements


When upgrading any CompletePBX system (excluding Spark) from version 5.0.59 or older, follow the following procedure:

1.  run  
yum install xorcom-centos-release
2.  run
yum update

This will ensure the system will be updated from the correct repositories.


PBX Backup & Restore

  • Backup now includes the etc/asterisk/ folder, which means that the custom configuration files are now backed up. Note: configuration files such as extensions__20-baseplan.conf that are provided by the CompletePBX packages are backed up but NOT restored automatically. It means that the manual changes that have possibly been made in the extensions__20-baseplan.conf file should be restored manually. The reason for not automatically restoring those files is that in some cases restoring such files may cause technical issues.

Additional PBX Improvements

  • Error messages text is now clearer
  • Firewall services are now alphabetically ordered by name

Bug Fixes

  • Apply action (reload) take a long time when the company firewall blocks the outbound from the PBX TLS connections. The problem was introduced in v.5.1.7
  • In some cases, the E1/T1 channels got disconnected and Asterisk started to consume a lot of CPU. The problem happened due to a bug that was introduced in Asterisk v.13.29.1 that was a part of the CompletePBX v.5.1.1. This CompletePBX release provides Asterisk v.13.31 where the bug has been fixed.
  • CloudPhone device info (Extensions -> Extension Status) was wrong
  • Unanswered calls to queue left a blank recording file
  • Extension Status sorting misbehaved under some conditions
  • Bulk Modification – selected extensions were not saved upon the next opening
  • When deleting a Voicemail Timezone from the system, there was no check and warning if the Voicemail Timezone was in use 
  • Portal GUI allowed Voicemail settings to be set to deleting voicemail without sending an attachment by email, thus deleting the voicemail message forever
