About

This page describes FreeSWITCH™ installation methods available for the macOS releases below. It is part of the FreeSWITCH™ macOS documentation.
 ---

Installation Methods

FreeSWITCH™ installation on macOS is performed using one of these methods:

  • Homebrew, the fastest method to get started.
  • The macFI installer utility, any FreeSWITCH version, identical to manual but faster and with installation logs.
  • Manually, takes the longest but is great if you want to know every detail about the installation steps and building from source.

Build and Testing Status

Testing is performed on Intel Macs with macOS and the latest Apple Command Line Tools installed into new volumes.

This status does not apply to the Homebrew version. 

History for older releases is at the macOS Archive.



Homebrew Installation

This is the easiest and fastest way to install FreeSWITCH on macOS. To perform a Homebrew installation use the macOS Homebrew Installation instructions.

Advantages

  • Easiest method to install FreeSWITCH™.
  • Apple Silicon and Intel versions available.
  • Support for the last three macOS versions.
  • Utilizes the least disk space.

Disadvantages

  • Is provided as a runtime only version, so building optional modules from source is difficult but not usually required.
  • Only provides the current production version.
  • This version is maintained independently from this wiki so there is very limited information.



macOS FreeSWITCH™ Installer (macFI)

The macOS FreeSWITCH™ Installer 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 identical functions as a manual installation with additions such as logging.



Manual Installation

A manual installation requires use of the Terminal application to enter commands to setup directories, install prerequisites and FreeSWITCH™.

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