Error Message:

You will be now directed to the main page."

Have searched /etc/asterisk/ and file does not exist and Also checked "Default asterisk configs" in /usr/share/asterisk/configs and file does Not exist.

I too just ran into this bug, thanks for reporting.

Ok, the quick fix for you is just create a file 'contactinfo.conf' in /etc/asterisk ( touch /etc/asterisk/contactinfo.conf )

The setup process should have created that file, but the file is currently being created during the registration process (which should not be the case).
So an alternative for the above quick fix is to fill in the registration form
of the last screen of setup wizard, if you are ok with that.

Anyway I'm going to fix that and ask james to make a new update for asteriskNOW.

thanks again for reporting :-)

Fixed, will be available in new asteriskNOW updates.
But I have a couple of other bugs to fix before I can
ask james to build updates.
