About

xxxoaeuThe current production release of FreeSWITCH™ is version 1.6 created 8 September, 2015 with later point releases. This is the recommended version to install for production systems.The current release of sounds and prompts is 1.0.51 as of 9 October, 2014 .

FreeSWITCH™ version 1.4 is tagged END OF LIFE, so it is wise to test version 1.6 NOW and upgrade to it if all works as expected in your environment. If you find bugs or omissions, please file a ticket on JIRA so that version 1.6 is the best it can be. Thanks.

The template that we follow assigns even version numbers to production releases and odd version numbers to development branches. Where you see instructions to retrieve code like

git clone https://freeswitch.org/stash/scm/fs/freeswitch.git freeswitch.git

you can obtain a specific branch with the -b argument followed by 'v' concatenated with the version number, for example

git clone –b v1.6 https://freeswitch.org/stash/scm/fs/freeswitch.git freeswitch.git

Pick Your Pill

Easy Way

The easiest way to get FreeSWITCH™ is to install the package for your operating system. Pre-built binaries are available for installation on some Linux and Unix distributions as well as Windows.

Debian 8 Package (FreeSWITCH 1.6)

Debian 8 Jessie (preferred)

Centos 7 Package (FreeSWITCH  1.6)

CentOS 7 and RHEL 7

Windows

Freeswitch Installer .msi

The binary MSI installer is built each weekend from Git head, includes default modules and 8KHz sounds, and is available for both x86 (32-bit) and x64 (64-bit).

Compiling Master Source Code

If you require the very latest features or patches or wish to hack FreeSWITCH you may compile from source code. FreeSWITCH™ is available for source compilation on Unix and Linux distributions as well as Windows.

Debian 8 Jessie Source

FreeSWITCH™ 1.6 depends on a number of libraries included with Debian 8, which is now the distribution of choice for FS core development team. Follow the instructions on the Debian 8 Jessie page; refer to Debian Post-Install Tasks for finishing touches.

macOS

The comprehensive macOS guide contains instructions for setting up FreeSwitch™ on a Mac with features such as autostart, emailing voicemails and log management.

OpenBSD

Special notes for building from source on OpenBSD.


The core developer team will only entertain bug reports on the latest Master branch code—it is impossible to debug old code that has long since changed and might have been patched already.

On this page you will find general information that applies to all installations of FreeSWITCH. Follow the links to your target operating system for specifics. The development team uses and builds against Debian 8 "Jessie". They recommend Debian because of its stable, yet updated, kernel and wide support. 

How To

If you're new to FreeSWITCH™ consider purchasing the Mastering FreeSWITCH™ book and be sure to read this introductory article: http://www.linuxpromagazine.com/Issues/2009/106/TALK-SOFT.

Updating Binaries

Config Changes

In version 1.4 the names of a number of configuration settings were changed, so you can not simply use old config files on your new FreeSWITCH™ binaries.

Settings of the form sip_*_media have become rtp_*_media because they properly control RTP media streams, SIP has nothing to do with them.

For example, sip_secure_media is now called rtp_secure_media.

 

Deprecated Instructions

 

Deprecated Packages

Debian Wheezy Package

CentOS 6 Package

rpm -Uvh http://files.freeswitch.org/freeswitch-release-1-0.noarch.rpm
