I’m super new to Asterisk. I’ve installed Asterisk 188.8.131.52 on a Mac OS X 10.6.8. And, I’ve got a few questions…
I can boot Asterisk, when logged in as root, from both the /usr/sbin and from the /usr/etc .
I’m not sure which is more appropriate.
I changed the permissions on some of the configuration files in /usr/etc/asterisk. When I tried to do the same in /usr/sbin/asterisk, I can’t get the configuration files to load/become visible, despite changing the permissions on /usr/sbin/asterisk. I’m not sure why…
Is it possible to have two versions of Asterisk that are separate?
I’ve got a copy of Asterisk: The Definitive Guide, which I didn’t have when I installed the software. I notice on page 33, I didn’t do steps 9-14. I’m wondering if it’s okay to pick up from there (chown on files in /usr/…and /var/…) but I want to make sure I’m on the right track.
Any help or directives would be much appreciated!
