hi all,
i installed :

now i want to have :

the problem is that the server is in used, i already registered some clients and i installed a2billing and many things. and i don’t want to lose this configuration.

if i download theses new releases of asterisk, zaptel and libpri and i install them, will i lose the first configuration ? how can i avoid this ?

any ideas ? thanks in advance for your help !

just don’t use ‘make samples’ when compiling Asterisk … that will overwrite the /etc/asterisk directory.

always cover your butt…
