Howto: Installing on Freeswitch

On an existing installation of Freeswitch, mod_cdr_mongodb needs to be compiled into Freeswitch. This procedure is described at

After having recompiled Freeswitch to support MongoDB CDR, make the following changes:

In freeswitch/conf/autoload_configs/cdr_mongodb.conf.xml
Change <param name="log-b-leg" value="false"/>
to <param name="log-b-leg" value="true"/>

Change <param name="namespace" value="test.cdr"/>
to <param name="namespace" value="freeswitch_cdr.cdr"/>

Then reload the Freeswitch configuration.

Now run the following commands at the console:

wget –no-check-certificate -O


When prompted, chose the option to install the Freeswitch version.

The install routine will ask a number of questions, all of which are self explanatory.

When completed, move onto Configuring  and Using CDR-Stats.


Installation on a New Server

Another script is available to install Freeswitch along with CDR-Stats. This script is intended to be run on a fresh Ubuntu 12.04 LTS or CentOS 6.2 installation :

wget –no-check-certificate -O
