Installation Methods

FreeSWITCH™ installation on macOS is performed by an installer utility 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 identical functions as a manual installation with additions such as logging.
