[Freeswitch-users] Unable to run fs_cli (returns Error Connecting [Socket Connection Error])

I have an automated script that I have been using to build the 1.6/1.7
(master) branch for FreeSWITCH.  Debian = Jessie (8.1); git branch = master.

Life was good.  But, about a week (or two) ago, I was no longer able to run
fs_cli from a shell window on my new builds...

craig $ fs_cli
[ERROR] fs_cli.c:1610 main() Error Connecting [Socket Connection Error]

FreeSWITCH itself is running in the background perfectly fine.  I can place
calls; and tail -f on the log file shows the same activity that would
expect to see on the fs_cli console.  The process is is running as user
"freeswitch" and all of the standard directories are owned by
"freeswitch".  And no obvious errors in the build log (but honestly, not
sure I'd spot the error in all the text if there was one :-)

Any hints on what the issue might be?  Thanks.


For what it is worth, here are the script commands that I use to build

# git freeswitch, bootstrap, configure and make...
git clone https://freeswitch.org/stash/scm/fs/freeswitch.git
sudo ./bootstrap.sh -j
sudo ./configure -C
perl -i -pe 's/#formats\/mod_vlc/formats\/mod_vlc/g' modules.conf
perl -i -pe 's/#applications\/mod_av/applications\/mod_av/g' modules.conf

sudo make
sudo make install
sudo make cd-sounds-install cd-moh-install samples

# add user & group freeswitch
sudo useradd  --shell /bin/bash --password `perl -e 'print crypt("....",
"....")'` freeswitch
sudo adduser freeswitch sudo
sudo chown -R freeswitch:freeswitch /usr/local/freeswitch/
sudo chmod -R o=rwx /usr/local/freeswitch/
sudo chown -R freeswitch:freeswitch /usr/local/src/freeswitch/
sudo chmod -R o=rwx /usr/local/src/freeswitch/

# set to run at startup
sudo ln /usr/local/freeswitch/bin/freeswitch /usr/bin/freeswitch
sudo ln /usr/local/freeswitch/bin/fs_cli /usr/bin/fs_cli
sudo mkdir /etc/freeswitch
sudo ln /usr/local/freeswitch/conf/freeswitch.xml

sudo chown freeswitch:daemon /etc/freeswitch
sudo chmod ug=rwx,o= /etc/freeswitch

sudo mkdir /var/lib/freeswitch
sudo chown freeswitch:daemon /var/lib/freeswitch
sudo chmod -R ug=rwX,o= /var/lib/freeswitch

sudo cp

sudo chown freeswitch:daemon /etc/default/freeswitch
sudo chmod ug=rw,o= /etc/default/freeswitch

sudo cp
