Hi Vishal,

I seem to remember running into this a while back, it turned out that I had old ssl libs in /usr/local/ssl and apache's build scripts were picking them up. instead of /usr/local/openssl - I can't remember what I did to get them to compile with the newer openssl libs, but here are a few things you could try:

1) Set the following in your environment before you build apache/mod_ssl

SSL_BASE=/usr/local/openssl (wherever the libs are you want to compile against)
export SSL_BASE

2) Find the libs ( find /usr/* -type f -name '*ssl*' ), tar them up and move them into another directory. Build apache/mod_ssl - then just untar the old libs back into place.
.... kinda messy though

Subject: OpenSSL verion from mod_ssl statically compiled into httpd?

Question: How do I find out the version of openssl used by my httpd that
has mod_ssl statically compiled into it?

"HEAD / HTTP/1.0" shows no mod_ssl info, and the only way in which I can
get anything is to use the following in the Apache conf:


Is this accurate, and can it be trusted? I ask because I recompiled
apache/mod_ssl using openssl 0.9.8c and the version the above showed in the
logs was older: 0.9.7b, which isn't installed on the box...?

My LD_LIBRARY path was set to /usr/local/ssl/lib, which contained:


It's an old setup that I've inherited from people who have all left now :-(
The source files and the way in which this was compiled have gone.

To be honest, I'm a bit confused as to the whole ssl setup with regards to
solaris <-->apache <--> mod_ssl. I download and compiled openssl 0.9.8e
from source and compiled mod_ssl with ./configure
--with-apache=../apache_1.3.37 --with-ssl=../openssl-0.9.8e

But when apache built, it said that it was using 0.9.8c the one installed
as a pkg on the solaris box. Why would it do that? Anyway, the custom log
the correct mod_ssl version, but an old openssl version.

Any help is much appreciated, thanks in advance guys.
