I am upgrading from php 5.4 to php 5.6 and running into issue with CURL SSL.

using easyapache 3 on WHM CENTOS
updating to apache 2.4.37 and php version 5.6.39

in the previous apache 2.2 php 5.4 configuration CURL SSL was working fine. but we were long overdue on this machine for a php update due to an old clients site was failing in versions of php other than php 5.4. so until their site was upgraded, it was stuck at 5.4x

In this new build, CURL SSL will not complete.

I noticed this in my build logs:
---
dryrun test 'Find Curl SSL path for PHP 5' did not return true

!! Dry run failed for 'Cpanel::Easy::PHP5::CurlSSL' skipping option !!
----

I was able to run another apache build with just CURL enabled and that completes successfully and enables regular CURL, but I tried again back and forth between builds and different verisons of apache and cannot get CURL SSL to enable.

some sites that connect to soundcloud, amazon, youtube ect... throwing errors mentioning missing curl ssl or Openssl issue which I belive are also curl ssl related.

It was suggested by SoftLayer and from an internal vendor ticket to try to enble enable curl and curl ssl concurrently. but curl ssl by default disbales curl so that wasnt working.

and to possibly do this by adding support for "weak or insecure ciphers".....which I have no clue.

any guidence on getting curl ssl enabled would be appreciated.

additionally....I had read on the forums that there might be related to duplicate rpms installed?

running rpm -qa |grep curl

I get this:

curl-7.15.5-17.el5_9
curl-devel-7.15.5-17.el5_9
curl-7.15.5-17.el5_9
curl-devel-7.15.5-17.el5_9

and this when running
rpm -qa |grep openssl

openssl-devel-0.9.8e-40.el5_11
openssl-0.9.8e-40.el5_11
openssl-devel-0.9.8e-40.el5_11
openssl-0.9.8e-40.el5_11

I find it interesting that it appears you have duplicate RPMs but that they're the same version.

OK I created a ticket, had some issue with getting the ticket system to allow access, but I think I got it set up properly.
