Hi,

I am  using CentOS 7 and tried to start the freeswitch with systemctl start
freeswitch.

It is working with freeswitch -nc but the systemctl start freeswitch is
using the freeswitch:daemon user, a shown below


root at localhost bin]# systemctl status freeswitch.service
‚óŹ freeswitch.service - freeswitch
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/freeswitch.service; enabled;
vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: failed (Result: start-limit) since Thu 2019-11-21 09:05:16 EST;

-ncwait $DAEMON_OPTS (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
  Process: 4249 ExecStartPre=/bin/chown -R freeswitch:daemon
/var/run/freeswitch/ (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
  Process: 4248 ExecStartPre=/bin/mkdir -p /var/run/freeswitch/
(code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
