I installed asterisk 1.8 using the tutorials on asterisk.org.
First of all, I am unable to execute the command (as it’s stated in the tutorial):
It errors out with:
/etc/init.d/asterisk: line 169: status: command not found
I am able to start and stop the services just fine. I just can’t verify if the service is ok.
And also, the tutorials state that when I first connect to the CLI using “asterisk -r”, that I’m supposed to see the following text:

But instead of the text above, I’m getting this:
