I do know that the Fedora EPEL project provides Asterisk for EL6, and I
believe they will support it for EL7 as well, once EPEL 7 comes out of beta
status.  EL7 uses systemd, so I'm not sure that the regular init file will
work properly without some tweaking, which is why I pointed you to the systemd
unit file that is used by the Asterisk RPMs from Fedora 20, and the one I use
with the RPM builds I make myself.

How are you installing Asterisk on CentOS 7?  Are you doing a regular
make/install from source, or using RPM packages?
