After registering my G729 codec, Asterisk cannot be restarted, message is:
[root@asterisk1 ~]# asterisk -r
Unable to connect to remote asterisk (does /var/run/asterisk/asterisk.ctl exist?)
This is the second time it happens, the first time on an SME 6.5RC1 system (RH7), the second time on latest asterisk@Home vs 1.2 on Centos 4.2. In both cases, the server was a standard box with SCISI drive.
I have checked the existence of the file /var/run/asterisk/asterisk.ctl, and it is present.
[root@asterisk1 asterisk]# ls /var/run/asterisk/
However, the file asterisk.ctl is highlighted red. When checking the same file with MC, the file is highlighted in black and has an equal sign in front , i.e. =asterisk.ctl
Have searched forum, no answers that I can find.
Some help would be very appreciated
