Can't upload fax for asterisk module in FreePBX

I am trying to install the module but not having any luck.

I have gone to the Fax for asterisk page (http://my.digium.com/en/docs/FAX/faa-download/) and downloaded the module to my computer. I then went to the module admin page of my Freepbx and tried to upload the module. I got the following error:

The following error(s) occurred processing the uploaded file:

Filename not in correct format: must be modulename-version.[tar|tar.gz|tgz] (eg. custommodule-0.1.tgz)
You should fix the problem or select another file and try again.


The filename is named
res_fax_digium-11.0-1.3.1-generic-64.tar.gz


I then tried to change the name to
res_fax_digium-11.0.tar.gz
And I received this error:
The following error(s) occurred processing the uploaded file:

File extracting to invalid location: res_fax_digium-11.0_1.3.1-generic_64/

File extracting to invalid location: res_fax_digium-11.0_1.3.1-generic_64/LICENSE
You should fix the problem or select another file and try again.


Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks,
Brad

Yes! :D

That's a module for Asterisk there, not a FreePBX Addon module. You can't upload an Asterisk module via the FreePBX web interface.

Cheers
