Asterisk 1.8.7, how to upgrade to Asterisk 1.8.9 using yum?

Dear All,

I am running Asterisk 1.8.7… how to upgrade to Asterisk 1.8.9 using yum?

please help

Thanks & Regards

There are many help topics for upgrading from asterisk-1.6 / 1.4 to asterisk-1.8 but not easy to find for upgrading to the newer release of the same

version. So removing it and installing the same should do the trick. I hope following procedure works for you.
Type following command on linux command line:

yum shell

This will open a shell where you can issue following commands to remove old installation and install new as follows:

remove asterisk18 asterisk18-core

install asterisk18-core asterisk18

ts solve

ts run

You can also include asterisk-addons in the above remove and install lists.

@Daniel -

I have asterisk1.6 and is working fine in the production environment. I have configured 40 extensions and all have their vm greetings etc. My question if I follow your procedure of removing asterisk 1.6 and installing 1.8, will that preserve all my extensions, routes, dadhi config etc…?
