TODO Move this to Default Configuration (which in turn also needs updating). Also adopt the existing naming conventions there.

TODO Consolidate sections  Default ConfigurationConfiguring FreeSWITCHConfiguration Recipes

Description of files and folders created during a FreeSWITCH installation (for example following the Debian 9 Stretch installation instructions), to help one decide which files are really needed.

For the most up-to-date list, see conf/vanilla  in the FreeSWITCH Github repo.

Top level entries are named after the global variable for the containing directory (see Directories section). For example, the main configuration directory on Debian 9:

`conf_dir` global variable's value in `fs_cli`
freeswitch@tr2> eval $${conf_dir}

conf_dir  (~> /etc/freeswitch  )

1.1 ./config.FS0 

Seems to be a sample fax modem configuration used by mod_spandsp, although config.FS0  is not mentioned there, and basing this on a signalwire/freeswitch  search, yielding the following line:

 2) copy conf/config.FS0 to /var/spool/hylafax/etc (or wherver the appropriate dir is on your system)

1.2 ./extensions.conf 

An example Asterisk dialplan. See mod_dialplan_asterisk.

1.3 ./freeswitch.serial 

From thread from the Freeswitch-users mailing list: "It is a unique number for that instance of FreeSWITCH, it is mostly used for zrtp" and its location cannot be changed.

1.4 ./freeswitch.xml 

The main configuration file. See Configuring FreeSWITCH or just freeswitch.xml section.

1.5 ./fur_elise.ttml 

See TTML. Committed by Brian West (96e907e7a88) on 01 Jan 2008 (commit message: "being a bit creative").


General information, and security advice to consider before going live.

2. Directories in conf_dir

2.1 ./yaml/ 

Seems to be created for people who complained regarding XML and/or wanted to use Asterisk style configuration. See this FAQ entry.

Committed by Anthony Minessale II in 2008 with commit message "Yet Another Mega Labotomy", and it hasn't been touched since. mod_yaml also hasn't been documented since 2008.
