I have an Asterisk 11 server happily running real time from a mySql database using ODBC. It is pretty basic, what would normally be administered in sip.conf and extensions.conf is in the database which is updated be external routines – all good.
NOW, given that *11 is reaching end of life, I want to upgrade to Asterisk 16. BUT, some of the components I relied upon to open and use the MySQL database are not present in *16. In the documentation for *16 I find nothing about Real Time, which suggests it would be the same as prior versions.
The most telling error is “Realtime mapping for ‘sippers’ found to engine ‘odbc’, but the engine is not available.”
If someone could simply refer to the appropriate documentation, I would be happy to RtDM, but I can’t find the right manual to read.
