Apache

# Add user freeswitch to group apache to avoid problems with /var/lib/php/sessions directory 
usermod -a -G apache freeswitch

# Set http server to run as same user/group as Freeswitch
sed -i "s/User apache/User freeswitch/" /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

# Set webserver to obey any .htaccess files in /var/www/html and subdirs 
sed -i ':a;N;$!ba;s/AllowOverride None/AllowOverride All/2' /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

Set ownership and permissions

It is a good idea to run this anytime there are any changes/moves/adds/upgrades.

# Ownership
chown -R freeswitch.daemon /etc/freeswitch /var/lib/freeswitch \
/var/log/freeswitch /usr/share/freeswitch /var/www/html

# Directory permissions to 770 (u=rwx,g=rwx,o='')
find /etc/freeswitch -type d -exec chmod 770 {} \;
find /var/lib/freeswitch -type d -exec chmod 770 {} \;
find /var/log/freeswitch -type d -exec chmod 770 {} \;
find /usr/share/freeswitch -type d -exec chmod 770 {} \;
find /var/www/html -type d -exec chmod 770 {} \;

# File permissions to 664 (u=rw,g=rw,o=r)
find /etc/freeswitch -type f -exec chmod 664 {} \;
find /var/lib/freeswitch -type f -exec chmod 664 {} \;
find /var/log/freeswitch -type f -exec chmod 664 {} \;
find /usr/share/freeswitch -type f -exec chmod 664 {} \;
find /var/www/html -type f -exec chmod 664 {} \;

Lock down the database server

mysql_secure_installation
systemctl restart mariadb

Answer Y to everything.

Configure firewall

yum -y install firewalld
systemctl enable firewalld
systemctl start firewalld
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service={http,https}
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port={5060,5061,5080,5081,8081}/tcp
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port={5060,5061,5080,5081}/udp
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=16384-32768/udp
firewall-cmd --reload
firewall-cmd --list-all

Enable services

systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl enable mariadb
systemctl enable httpd
systemctl enable freeswitch
systemctl restart httpd
systemctl restart freeswitch
systemctl disable sendmail
systemctl stop sendmail
systemctl enable postfix
systemctl restart postfix

Test Freeswitch console

If fs_cli command is not working change the following line.

nano +4 /etc/freeswitch/autoload_configs/event_socket.conf.xml
<param name="listen-ip" value="127.0.0.1"/>
systemctl restart freeswitch

Browse to control panel

http://x.x.x.x:8081

username: admin
password: admin

The 8081 port can be changed at /var/lib/astpp/astpp-config.conf and  /etc/httpd/conf.d/astpp.conf. Remember to change the port on the firewall as well.
