SOLVED: VoiceMail doesnt record message - only plays prompt

server just crashed so I needed to start over (stupid, no current backup!)

Everything is great, but now with my ast 11.2 my voicemail is playing the busy (or u) prompt, then exiting out - my users cannot record.

Executing [stdexten-BUSY@DLPN_DP_AVShop:1] VoiceMail(“SIP/2001-00000000”, “2009,b”) in new stack
– <SIP/2001-00000000> Playing ‘/var/spool/asterisk/voicemail/default/2009/busy.slin’ (language ‘en’)
– Executing [stdexten-BUSY@DLPN_DP_AVShop:2] NoOp(“SIP/2001-00000000”, “Finish stdexten BUSY”) in new stack

Why is nothing else happening?

I really hope this helps someone else out!

I installed freepbx for the first time, and copied over all my config files BUT the voicemail.conf file. Anyways there was a maxmsg line that was

"maxmsg = "

I opened another blank install with sample files and saw a comment that if left blank it will be in greetings only mode.
