I just made a copy of the extension.confg.sample and created a new extension.confg file and inserted the example in O’Reilly for FXS and FXS cards. I opened Asterisk and did a dialplan reload, then dialplan show, the question is that the shown dialplan has the varables I added and a lot of other varables in it that I did not type inn, I went back and checked the extension.confg file and it still contained the orginal values I insterted? I think these varables may have been put in the file as samples when I first did the Asterisk install, how do I get them out of the extension.confg file?


did you copy extensions.conf.sample to extensions.conf then edit it? If so you didnt create a new one, please paste the extensions.conf in here so we can see what you have in it.
