Voicemail Changed Passwords - Where are they?


#1

Hi all, I appologize ahgead of time if this has been answered somewhere before, but I haven’t been able to find an answer.

I’m running Asterisk on FreeBSD, and I have a working voicemail system. I changed my password for voicemail, but I would like to know where (if anywhere reachable) this information is stored. It’s not in the conf files and I haven’t found anywhere else mentioned as storing this info.

Thanks!

It’s not in the conf files

It is !

When you change your password via the voicemail application, it is written back to the file

/etc/asterisk/voicemail.conf

just lookup the appropiate line, change the password back and reload asterisk.

Note, then when you also change your message, there are files stored
in
/var/lib/asterisk/oicemail///

Im not sure, if the PW is stored there in a file when the message was changed TOO !

Richard,

I checked that first thing. it still shows the initial password I assigned. The only issue I can think of is the way I have it setup. Voicemailboxes are defined in an include file voicemail.include.

voicemail.conf:

[general]
format=wav49|gsm|wav
serveremail=pbx
attach=yes
skipms=3000
maxsilence=10
silencethreshold=128
servermail=voicemail@myplace.com

#include voicemail.include

voicemail.include:

[default]

thnx!
Mike
26 => ,,,attach=yes|delete=yes

Oho…an include…ok.

Sneaky :stuck_out_tongue:

Lemme check quick, brb.

Ok, easy - figured it:

It isnt stored…LMAO !

Its just held temporarely till next “reload”, then the OLD PW gets active again, from the include file.

Soooo…having include files in the voicemail.conf is no good idea…

gotcha. Double checked it and it got reloaded.

I inherited the conf files from someone else, and not sure why they did it that way, but I’m undoing it right now!

Thanks Richard!

Mike
