If you successfully install the FREESWITCH. In this post I will explain how to create the new user or modify the existing user.
Step 1. Locate the conf directory inside the freeswitch installed directory.
Step 2. change directory to default/
# cd conf/directory/default
This directory contain xml file related to default user extension to be used.
Step 3. To create a new user cp any of the file and name it with your desired extension.
# cp 1000.xml 9999.xml
Step 4. Make the changes to new file as per your extension.
# vim 9999.xml change the following tags user id="9999" choose your password. param name="password" value="123" If you want to change call group make changes in variable tag or default can also work.
For new group make changes in make changes in default.xml # vim conf/directory/default.xml the file is self descriptive.
Step 5. Make change Regex in dialplan
# vim conf/dialplan/default.xml locate tag line # 257 change the regex with your extension number in my case I included 9999
Step 6. Reload the xml file using fs_cli terminal
# fs_cli freeswitch@internal> reload xml
Its done .... Now test your new extension using your softphone.
