    OK, I know that this is a dead horse that has likely been beaten a number of times, but I'm dragging it out again anyway.

    I'm running Elastix 2.0.? right now (I have no way of knowing what version it is. elastix.noarch 2.0.0-41 is waiting for me in yum right now, if that helps...). Anyhow, let me put out some basic info first:

    1.) I never use the pbxadmin embedded FreePBX, I ONLY use "Unembedded FreePBX".
    2.) I don't want to completely screw up the yum setup.

    Given those two caveats, I want to upgrade FreePBX to 2.8 via the module admin, but I wanted to ask just how harebrained that is. I can think of the following potential problems:

    1.) Some special configuration in Elastix will make upgrading dicey, at best.
    2.) Elastix will release a 2.7.x FreePBX RPM at some point in the future, which will overwrite my manually upgraded 2.8 if I don't notice it and exclude it.

    Anything else?

    I suggest you "wait before you beat that dead horse"

    Elastix is being updated at a frantic pace

    elastix-2.0.0-38.noarch.rpm 15-Sep-2010 17:18 14M
    elastix-2.0.0-39.noarch.rpm 28-Sep-2010 16:13 14M
    elastix-2.0.0-40.noarch.rpm 28-Sep-2010 18:24 14M
    elastix-2.0.0-41.noarch.rpm 29-Sep-2010 17:32 14M
    elastix-2.0.0-42.noarch.rpm 29-Sep-2010 23:40 14M

    Maybe soon there will be one that is actually stable (i.e. not need updating twice a day)

    until then all questions as to FreePBX 2.8 in Elastix 2.0 are in abeyance, there is no public changelog and there is no published reason for this fervor, go figure . . .

    Maybe Dobbin is not not dead just exhausted, give him a few weeks, maybe he's not ready for the knackers yard yet.

    Dicko,

    Thanks for the response. That sounds like good advice.
