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,
