As most distributions have moved to systemd, here's an example startup script that you may customize for your installation.

This has been tested to work on CentOS 7.

Contents of /etc/systemd/system/freepbx.service
[Unit]
Description=FreePBX VoIP Server
After=mariadb.service

[Service]
Type=oneshot
RemainAfterExit=yes
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/fwconsole start -q
ExecStop=/usr/sbin/fwconsole stop -q

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target
 

From there you can enable it so it starts automatically

Note that on Debian 8.1, you need to use After=mysql.service, not After=mariadb.service. 

[root@firewall ~]# systemctl enable freepbx.service
ln -s '/etc/systemd/system/freepbx.service' '/etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/freepbx.service'
[root@firewall ~]#

And then start it yourself if you haven't already

[root@firewall ~]# systemctl start freepbx
[root@firewall ~]#

You can check the output of the startup with the 'systemctl status' command

[root@firewall ~]# systemctl status -l freepbx.service
