/etc/innit.d/asterisk start no such file or directory

hi i’ve installed make install, make samples, make config i’ve gone /etc/innit.d/asterisk start not such file or directory, i’ve then looked into my etc folde and i dont even have a innit.d folder i have an innit folder but not no asterisk inside…anyone know a fix?

The ‘make config’ command set it up to start upon reboot.
You can also start it with ‘sudo asterisk’
The binary is probably in /usr/sbin


/etc/innit.d/asterisk = not equal /etc/init.d/asterisk


try reinstall asterisk

Different versions of Linux (whatever flavor) use different methods to start services.

In chronological order:

  1. /etc/init.d/ start
  2. services start
  3. systemctl start

It’s up to you to identify:

  1. Which flavor (distro) and version of Linux are you using.
  2. Which method of ‘services startup’ does your Linux use.
  3. Which version of Asterisk are you using?

This is depends on which distro you are running your asterisk .
you can check your distro version from /etc/os-release .
If you are under CentOs 6.5 you will find the asterisk starter script under /etc/init.d/asterisk
if you are under CentOs 7.x you can start the asterisk with “service asterisk start”
