Unable to open Asterisk database

Reported by: shermanrand@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Attitude Adjustment 12.09
Keywords: Asterisk astdb Cc:


Have installed Attitude Adjustment and Asterisk18 which runs (peers) only under -gvvc and get the following error -

db.c:115 dbinit: Unable to open Asterisk database '/var/lib/asterisk/astdb': No such file or directory

Believe it has something to do with my init.d asterisk - which is below. - Please advise -

#!/bin/sh /etc/rc.common

Duplicate of #9618.

Current trunk should have this issue fixed. Not by changing asterisk.conf directories section template to generic section, but in init script.

  • Resolution duplicate deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

Please check the trunk version (asterisk 11) because error is still present and the only way is remove (!) from directories (asterisk.conf)
