Aleksandar's computer workshop

Let's see what Aleksandar was fixing today.
My findings, tips & tricks related to computers, internet, programming and other stuff I was working with.

FreePBX Music on Hold troubleshooting

To add custom MP3 files to Music on Hold folder you can use FTP, SCP 
or any other file transfer method.
Upload the file to this location:
After that yo have to "fix" the security rights with:
chown -vR asterisk.asterisk /var/lib/asterisk/mohmp3
chmod -v 775 /var/lib/asterisk/mohmp3
chmod -v 664 /var/lib/asterisk/mohmp3/*
In case you still want to use web interface and plan to upload larger mp3 music on hold files, change the “max filesize” from 2M to 20M in
nano /etc/php.ini
