    When trying to backup and restore from one 1.5.2-2 box to another new one, I have narrowed down the fact that restoring the fax database to the newer server destroys it. Let me be clear with this:

    1) I backed up Elastix and FreePBX before trying to implement the Fax restore.
    2) After restoring the fax "database" data, the server no longer allows phones to register
    3) I restored both Elastix and FreePBX to the backups I made before restoring the fax database

    4) I now have to REINSTALL the whole server because restoring from backup did not work.

    I'm mad as hell because I have been dealing with this for over a week now. Why are backup systems implemented in the production/stable version that not only fail to work, but destroy the installation?
