titlePre-Built Binaries

The easiest way to get FreeSWITCH™ is to install a pre-built package for your operating system, available for some Linux and Unix distributions and Windows.

Debian 10 Package (FreeSWITCH 1.10)

titleCompiling Source Code

FreeSWITCH™ is available for source compilation on Unix , Linux, macOS, and Windows for the following reasons:

  • You want to build the Development version because you require the very latest features or patches, or wish to hack FreeSWITCH

Debian 10 Buster Source

1.10 depends on a number of libraries included with Debian 10, which is now the distribution of choice for FS core development team. Follow the instructions on the Debian 10 Buster page; refer to Debian Post-Install Tasks for finishing touches.

macOS

There is an installer and comprehensive macOS guide containing instructions for setting up FreeSwitch™ on a Mac with features such as autostart, emailing voicemails and log management.

For example, sip_secure_media is now called rtp_secure_media

Debian 7 Package (FreeSWITCH 1.4)

Debian Wheezy Package

CentOS 6 Package

rpm -Uvh http://files.freeswitch.org/freeswitch-release-1-0.noarch.rpm
yum install freeswitch-config-vanilla
