I ran into an issue when I upgraded my Debian unstable box to systemd. I have FreeSWITCH on this box and the systemd initiation is not working.
Dec 14 18:05:44 mail systemd: freeswitch.service: Start operation timed out. Terminating.
Dec 14 18:05:48 mail systemd: Failed to start freeswitch.
Dec 14 18:05:48 mail systemd: freeswitch.service: Unit entered failed state.
Dec 14 18:05:48 mail systemd: freeswitch.service: Failed with result 'timeout'.
Dec 14 18:05:48 mail systemd: freeswitch.service: Service hold-off time over, scheduling restart.
Dec 14 18:05:48 mail systemd: Stopped freeswitch.
Dec 14 18:05:48 mail systemd: Starting freeswitch...
Dec 14 18:05:50 mail systemd: freeswitch.service: PID file /run/freeswitch/freeswitch.pid not readable (yet?) after start: No such file or directory
After much research and trial and error, I finally found the solution. I had to change the PIDFile statement of the freeswitch.service file.
For months, my flowroute DID on my Freeswitch box has been misconfigured. I did not really care because I only use this as a backup. But, ever since I moved in the new house where the cellphone signal is atrocious , I find it necessary to have this working.
I had to call Dev at the house yesterday but the cellular call keeps dropping. When I called the flowroute DID , it gave me “you’ve dialled a non working number” . So today after much research , I found that I had to set the route settings in the flowroute site. I also had to match the port with the external profile port on my freeswitch box.
I am taking on a new project. I already started this a week ago and It’s still really a work in progress.
So,from my title you may know that I am trying out Freeswitch. I had Asterisk for so long I can’t even remember now. I mainly use my Asterisk setup for google voice and I don’t like that their implementation breaks a lot. I really don’t know if its Asterisk’s fault but I am just willing to try out something new ,hopefully this will be a whole lot better.
A couple of days ago ,I already figured out how to get incoming and outgoing GV(google voice) calls. Now all I need is to make a few adjustments to the dialplan,if I figure this out.*crosses fingers* The dialplan for me I think is much easier to understand than asterisk ,I just need a refresher on REGEX because all the logic depends on it.
Browsing through the Freeswitch wiki ,I found that refresher on REGEX.Thanks a lot to the Freeswitch community,I feel like I am . . .home. *winks*
