Hi.
i do have a working machine that i need to replace it with a newer one.
i used the backup option that comes with elastix.
Is it possible to find out where the backups sit in my machine and copy them to the newer one.
if yes will i be able to restore the settings to the new machine?

Yes, but I will recommend that both server should have the same version.
If you know the name of the backup file, you can run the following command:

find / -name mybackupname

And then place it under the same directory on your other elastix, then it will be availabe on the restore list.

You will need to run the command that I have told you.

If you are using Elastix 1.5, they are located at
/var/www/html/backup
