Is there any particular reason you're using CentOS instead of Debian 8?

Debian 8 is the recommended OS for FreeSWITCH for stability and support, the FS Devs use Debian 8 as does a large majority of the FS community.

Hi All.  I am attempting to install FS and I am running into issues.  I am attempting to install FS following the instructions on this page- https://freeswitch.org/confluence/display/FREESWITCH/CentOS+7+and+RHEL+7.  When I attempt to run the second line, yum install -y freeswitch-config-vanilla freeswitch-lang-* freeswitch-sounds-*, I am receiving the following error- http://drops.tiltx.org/BUUzG0.

When I look at the freeswitch.repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d, I see the baseURL pointing to http://files.freeswitch.org/yum-1.6/$releasever/$basearch.  However, when I visit http://files.freeswitch.org/yum-1.6/latest, I get a 'Not Found' error- http://drops.tiltx.org/aqwKWN.

I have attempted to update the baseURL to http://files.freeswitch.org/yum-1.6/7/x86_64/ as well as http://files.freeswitch.org/yum-1.6/7server/x86_64/, but then receive a 'libpcre.so.1 not found' error.

I know something is not right, but I do not know what that is.  Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thank you,
