Hello

using Asterisk 1.8.32.3

Current music on hold :

myserver*CLI> moh show files Class: default
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/macroform-robot_dity
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/macroform-cold_day
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/reno_project-system
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/manolo_camp-morning_coffee
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/macroform-the_simplicity

New musiconhold file :

[root@myserver ]# file
/var/lib/asterisk/moh/myfolder/1/macroform-the_simplicity.wav
/var/lib/asterisk/moh/myfolder/1/macroform-the_simplicity.wav: RIFF
(little-endian) data, WAVE audio, Microsoft PCM, 16 bit, mono 8000 Hz

I issue a reload of the moh :

myserver*CLI> moh reload myserver*CLI> module reload res_musiconhold.so
[Mar 3 15:04:53] — Reloading module ‘res_musiconhold.so’ (Music On Hold Resource)

Situation after reload :

myserver*CLI> moh show files Class: default
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/macroform-robot_dity
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/macroform-cold_day
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/reno_project-system
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/manolo_camp-morning_coffee
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/macroform-the_simplicity

Even a complete ‘module reload’ on Asterisk CLI does nothing :

myserver*CLI> module reload
[Mar 3 15:13:54] == Parsing ‘/etc/asterisk/extconfig.conf’: [Mar 3
15:13:54] == Found
[Mar 3 15:13:54] == Parsing ‘/etc/asterisk/logger.conf’: [Mar 3
15:13:54] == Found

[Mar 3 15:13:54] — Reloading module ‘res_musiconhold.so’ (Music On Hold Resource)

Situation after reload :

myserver*CLI> moh show files Class: default
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/macroform-robot_dity
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/macroform-cold_day
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/reno_project-system
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/manolo_camp-morning_coffee
File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/macroform-the_simplicity

So, reloading musiconhold does not reload/read musiconhold files.

How to read/load new musiconhold files into asterisk ??

Kind regards.

  • Your new file is in the ‘myfolder/1” subdirectory of the MOH directory.

    Either move the file into the MOH directory or define a new class in musiconhold.conf that is for your directory.

  • Hello

    I did not mention it but of course the MOH directory is listed in
    /etc/asterisk/musiconhold.conf :

    [default]
    mode=files directory=/var/lib/asterisk/moh

    [myfolder_1]
    mode=files directory=/var/lib/asterisk/moh/myfolder/1
    sort=alpha

    [myfolder_2]
    mode=files directory=/var/lib/asterisk/moh/myfolder/2
    sort=alpha

    [myfolder_3]
    mode=files directory=/var/lib/asterisk/moh/myfolder/3
    sort=alpha

    No mather where I put the new file, it is never listed.

    Untill a full restart of Asterisk ! Then it is listed. But is there no other way to load/read a new MOH file than to completely restart Asterisk ??

    After Asterisk restart :

    myserver*CLI> moh show files Class: default
    File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/reno_project-system
    File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/macroform-the_simplicity
    File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/manolo_camp-morning_coffee
    File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/macroform-robot_dity
    File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/macroform-cold_day Class: myfolder_1
    File: /var/lib/asterisk/moh/myfolder/1/macroform-the_simplicity

    Kind regards.

  • Hello

    is there any more information on how to reload/read musiconhold files ?

    Kind regards.

  • Hello

    as you can read in my original post “moh reload” and “module reload res_musiconhold.so” does nothing.

  • I think there is currently a bug with MOH. For now, if you add a file to a moh folder, ‘touch musiconhold.conf’ and then reload moh. Please let me know how it goes.

    Kind regards

  • Just spotted that you are using Asterisk 1.8.32.3. The bug I’m thinking of is in the latest version. I don’t know if your version is affected.
