Testing Status

Weekly testing has been suspended since it's been several months since Freeswitch built successfully on macOS.

You may install Freeswitch from Homebrew at this time. Detailed instructions may be added to this wiki once more information about the Homebrew version becomes available.

Weekly macOS testing was currently performed only on Intel Macs. 

All macOS versions are installed into new volumes with the latest Apple Command Line Tools. Upgraded systems are never used.

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.

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,
