Hi Joli,

While it can be installed to any root, you would have had to manually changed things to install in /etc.

Are you sure your freeswitch is not in /usr/local/freeswitch?

If so it is your startup scripts that are not correct.  When you say "I restarted it" does that mean you did a "service freeswitch restart (or start)"

If this is urgent and freeswitch is actuall in /usr/local/freeswitch start it manually from /usr/local/freeswitch/bin.

Then we can figure out what is not configured correctly.

I have a production Freeswitch box and this morning I noticed FS was not working.  I restarted it and got this message.  As far as I know no one has touched the box, but not 100% sure.  Any ideas why I am getting this.  I researched and a lot of the hits I got was due to a bad install, but this box has been working correctly for over 6 months.

[ERR] switch_xml.c:1385 Couldn't open /etc/freeswitch/freeswitch.xml (No such file or directory)
