Asterisk Not Reading extensions.conf; Only extensions.ael


I have configured the extensions.conf file however when I go into the Asterisk CLI and type the command “dialplan show” I only see the dialplan from the ael file. Nothing shows up from the .conf file.

Is there a way to disable asterisk from reading the ael file and reading only the conf file.

I thought Asterisk read both?

Please help.


I had this same problem and never could figure out how to fix it, so… I figured out how to do everything in the .ael file. Personally, I think its better than the old format, but it would be much better if ALL the config files were converted and if there were some better examples out there.
