Asterisk 1.6.1.12

Hi All,

I have installed the above version on Centos 5.3. I have set the astrundir directive in /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf to /var/run/asterisk.

However, when Asterisk starts, it still tries to write asterisk.ctl to the /var/run directory which will only work if Asterisk is run as root.

Why is the astrundir directive not being used when asterisk starts ?

Excerpt from /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf

astrundir => /var/run/asterisk

TIA

Ian
