Etc/asterisk= No_Files


I bought a new server to virtualize some of my machines. My asterisk box is one of them. I loaded Centos_8 , VMWare and then Asterisk. All went well. But when I go to etc/asterisk there are no configurations files. It is empty and asterisk is running. Is there another directory where the files would be? Anybody see this before?

Thank You,

Probably obvious and already considered, but:

  1. You mean '/etc/asterisk/' right?

  2. Are you on the right VM?

  3. Would 'sudo find / -name asterisk.conf' yield a clue?

  4. How about 'systemctl status asterisk’ or 'cat /lib/systemd/system/asterisk.service'?


I appreciate the come back. Yes, Sir; right machine. I checked. ect/asterisk no files. But Asterisk is running. Moot point now. I deleted that machine. Start from scratch.

Thank you,


Just redid the whole deal from scratch and no files in etc/asterisk again. When I do the find command, asterisk.conf is usr/src/asterisk-13.37.0/configs/basic-pbx. I did not make samples or make basic-pbx commands. Is the etc/asterisk directory empty until I create them?

Thanks again,

I did a "make samples " command. etc/asterisk is full of config files now. Who would have thought?


'make config' should take care of startup script cruft.
