so I have to build a new server. I have been running 1.2.x for a long time, I am not having any major problems, but the occasional glitch here and there means I have to do a restart every once in a while (less than once a month)
I’ve searched, I’ve read changelogs, but for the life of me, can someone please explain why I should not just get the last 1.2.x with whatever security holes plugged, versus the latest 1.4.x, versus the latest 1.6.x. At least that way I could keep my dialplan ?
I have a few constant uptime sites and they have been running fine for years… and to be honest because of that I haven’t paid attention to the code tree… and I want stability, voice quality and uptime over anything. no GUI needed, no support needed for hardware that I dont have, no support needed for codecs that I cant use, etc. . sites are all gxp2k sip phones and some basic sipura FXOs for the older phones, going to the local server through a firewall to a PSTN voip provider via DSL/cable for incoming and outgoing, with a digium card (with just one line) for backup / 911 access / fax, and they run voicemail, a few queues, but basically are used all day.
the new machines are running RHEL5.2, under a xen PVM (yes I’ve tried it with the zaptel timer issue fix and it seems ok, at least on my old 1.2.x, only thing I haven’t tried under a PVM is hardware reservation for the digium card which I can live without if need be)
is this a FAQ that I just cant find ?
