Change in extensions.conf did not affect asterisk, Why?

Dear helper,

A change in extensions.conf file did not affect the functionality of asterisk, why?

I want to test the function of apps_rxfax, the change is shown below in bold and is underlined,
exten => 7777,1,Goto(from-pstn,s,1)
exten => 666,1,Goto(ext-fax,in_fax,2)
exten => h,1,Macro(hangupcall)

It still works as if it’s 1,
Where should I modify to change the behaviour?

Thanks in advance,

Did you execute the cli command “dialplan reload” after the changes in extensions.conf ?

Dear Marco,

Thanks for your help,

CLI command “extensions reload” did the trick,
Hope anyone editing this file, find this comment helpful,


You can just simply restart the asterisk server also with “restart gracefully”

There is no reason to restart after a dialplan change. restarting stops asterisk and will not allow calss to come through at all until its running again. For dailplan changes a simple reload just tells asterisk to llok at the new conf files will let existing calls stay connected and new calls will go through with the new dialplan.
