    i keep hearing about ARI, asterisk recording interface, and how users can go there and change their voicemail settings. How do i get to this, or is it even included in elastix. Ive looked in freepbx and the only thing i see in elastix is a voicemail option in the pbx tab.

    I have elastix 1.0-17

    In the FreePBX interface you should have 5 tabs at the top i.e

    Admin Reports Panel Recordings Help

    If you dont have the above, then give this a go.

    I downloaded the ARI for FreePBX module but im kinda clueless as to how i go about installing it. Ive never messed with linux. Can i FTP in and put it all in that directory... /var/www or how do i go about doing that. The file i downloaded is a WinRAR file and not a tar.gz file.

    2, Once the above is done go the the Recordings WinRAR file and double click on it.
    3, You will have a folder call Recordings you can now drag that folder to your desktop.
    4, Now go to this link below from a windows machine and download and install this program WinSCP.

    6, Login to your Elastix server using the WinSCP program by clicking on the icon on your desktop you will now have to windows on the left is your windows C drive or whatever and on the right side you will have your Elastix folders & files.
