As for the newly released software, the improvements made in Asterisk 16 and FreePBX 15 include advanced capabilities that provide developers with the tools to create applications that are more robust and feature-rich.
Asterisk and FreePBX also received upgrades that will improve performance, make system management easier for administrators, and allow developers to build solutions that are more adaptable to end-user environments. Asterisk 16 builds upon the extensive video conferencing capabilities introduced in Asterisk 15 to provide a dramatically improved video experience for users. Asterisk now delivers superior video performance for all network conditions, which reduces the risk of frozen video frames and provides a world-class framework for creating cutting-edge video applications.
Support for Enhanced Messaging has been added to give developers the ability to build rich client applications with text-based data exchanges. Now, multi-party video conferencing client applications can share URLs, list conference participants, highlight talkers, and enable multi-party chat. Asterisk 16 has also undergone significant performance enhancements to better handle SIP calling by decreasing the system memory and CPU consumption required during high volume situations, most notably when utilizing the PJSIP channel driver.
The new API makes it easier to integrate FreePBX with third-party applications and enables users to create more efficient business workflows and processes. As of today, there are 10 modules in production that take advantage of the new API with others currently in development. FreePBX 15 makes system management simpler with a redesigned backup process that handles backups on a per-module basis.
Now, administrators can create custom backups, perform cross-version backup and restore, and enjoy more options for keeping their data safe. To get detailed information about the new changes or to access documentation and usage samples, visit the Asterisk wiki or the FreePBX wiki.

Welcome to FreePBX!
It generally is releases behind what is actually current for Asterisk. The nature of the questions raised in this thread make me think you would be better served by installing the distro from the ISO. There are a few tickets in progress. Thank you lgaetz and jfinstrom for your answer. I realized this thread is old but I just wanted to point out that you can use PHP 7.
You only need PHP 5. My comment in was true in Recent threads have covered this.
This thread is one of the first that comes up when doing a google search for compatibility. When it may have started working is besides the point. PHP 7. We have found several PHP 7. In the mean time, v7. Most of the PHP 7. A good chunk of the remaining issues from our side are on the commercial module side of things too, so those would probably remain internal.
Any suggestions? The FreePBX 15 release is expected for this month? Thank you. Asterisk 16 is available for 13 or Nothing is PHP7x ready. BlazeStudios Ok, I understood, thank you. Then perhaps you should have look at more recent threads.System and modules are up to date.
However, whenever selecting Asterisk 16, I receive an error. A screen recording of the process is here. After the switch, Asterisk 16 will not start and I am forced to revert to Asterisk 13 or Here are logs and support files.
Your log file is massive and it is unclear when you attempted to start asterisk compared to when you reverted… Next time, instead of making us watch a 1min 35sec youtube video of you trying to install Asterisk try to pin point us to the error in question or copy and paste the error here.
It makes for quicker debugging. Also you should go back and install Asterisk 16 like you did but after the error try to connect to asterisk:. You probably have a bad module sitting in the modules folder though.
So a clean uninstall of asterisk is a good start. I am using the official distro. I want to confirm before deleting the contents that this correct to remove. I read your statement just fine.

XML documentation may be incomplete. XSLT support not found. Segmentation fault. Thank you very much. Successfully updated to Asterisk Can anyone point me in the right direction for upgrading Asterisk to I can only find documentation for installation, and not upgrading.
For Asterisk 16, you can try upgrading and running asterisk-version-switch; see. Which means if you bought a Sangoma appliance you may have voided support or other options by moving to a BETA release. I would also suggest talking to your sales rep. Just understand FreePBX 15 is not recommended for production use so if this is meant to be a production server, you need to find out what can be done to get you back on v Yeah I understand. The original announcement said nothing about it being ready for production, it was an introduction announcement.
Prehaps the process should be rethought, because if you search this issue, it seem s to be a common occurance. There are no direct ways to install FreePBX v15 right now. The only way to get to it is by upgrading a v14 system. Which would have had this:.
That page says it was released, nothing about beta! Did you test that message in all browsers and all versions? It was not on mine. So yes, you would need to be physic. The announcements about FreePBX 15 are indeed confusing, suggesting it could be final when you say something is available, this usually implies a final - not a beta.
Also something being released usually implies you can install it without updating from the previous version. Both things are really not a big problem, but it is unnecessarily confusing.
The entire FreePBX distro seems to be not getting a lot of love at the moment though - neither Asterisk Well, like I said, neither Asterisk This is a bit unusual and Asterisk Also, if you want further examples, the FreePBX 15 alpha came out a year ago and we have only progressed from alpha to beta. Asterisk in the Distro has always lagged a bit, and moving them to the stable repo lags even more. This is not new. Pretty much this. This has nothing to do with personnel changes. The speed of15 being released is a whole different can of worms.
Stewart1 UTC 2. Right, that is all I have ever seen also. So I wanted to know what the OP was referring to. Gerald UTC I hope the development pace picks back up again.In the rare case you are installing on your own hardware please contact your sales representative on how to proceed with installing PBXact.
By itself, FreePBX won't do anything. If you are not an expert with Linux and its dependent components, you'll want to choose and install a Distro. There are a number of distributions "Distros" available that will automatically install include FreePBX, Linux, and all the other components you need. When you use a distribution, you avoid having to learn how to install, compile, and configure each of these required components.
A good distribution comes with everything you need to get started.
For some suggestions on what to do after you finish the installation read about Configuring your PBX here. Other versions or non-distro systems may also work, but have not been tested. There are legacy options to use non-mysql databases, but it's not a supported configuration. It is assumed that the remote MySQL database has already been created with user credentials set to appropriate permissions.
Take note of the DSN. Save the file and restart asterisk with 'fwconsole restart' or 'amportal restart'. Going back to asterisk again, the earlier command will now show something a bit different:. You want to confirm that the database is now connected. Now when you make calls, they get written to the remote database and you can see them in FreePBX. Evaluate Confluence today. Pages Blog.
