Backup!

This procedure installs a significant amount of software, almost all of it can be removed easily. However, some of the Apple Command Line Tools, part of Xcode may remain. There is no problem leaving these small parts installed, but to restore to a point where nothing was installed a backup is required before starting this procedure.

 


Installation Methods

Installation of FreeSWITCH™ on macOS can be performed using the macOS FreeSWITCH™ Installer (macFI), or manually.

macOS FreeSWITCH™ Installer (macFI)

The macOS FreeSWITCH™ Installer is the recommended method because it automates all of the manual steps, providing much simpler and faster installation. Other advantages include renaming existing FreeSWITCH™ directories before installation, and creating installation logs. The macFI information and download is located at macOS macFI Installation.
 

The macOS FreeSWITCH™ Installer performs the identical functions as a manual install with additions such as logging.

Manual Installation

A manual installation requires downloading and installing Xcode. Then using the Terminal application to enter commands to setup directories, install prerequisites and FreeSWITCH™.

To perform a manual installation use the macOS Manual Installation instructions,
