Asterisk Now 1.7 has a hole in the installation. There are missing parts of Asterisk installation, namely the CDR (Call Detail Records) and the FOP (Flash Operator Panel). Now I don’t normally worry to much with FOP, but the CDR is an entirely needed part of any PBX installation. Evidently there are some copyright issues, and Digium just leaves this functions out. You would think they would put an obvious note somewhere.
To fix this, once you have installed Asterisk and FreePBX, open up a terminal connection and do the following:
# From the command line, issue the following commands
yum install asterisk16-addons
Now CDR and FOP will work.
