BLF light is not updating when changing items like DND or Follow Me-1

The BLF light is controlled by a daemon that runs on the PBX.  To see if daemon is running follow the command below from your Linux CLI

[root@mypbx ~]# /etc/init.d/restapps status
restapps.php (pid  23665) is running...
[root@mypbx ~]#

 

As we can see the daemon is running above.  If it was down it would show

[root@mypbx ~]# /etc/init.d/restapps status
restapps.php is stopped
[root@mypbx ~]#

 

To restart the daemon run the following command.

[root@mypbx ~]# /etc/init.d/restapps start
Starting REST applications daemon:                         [  OK  ]
