Hello,

After updating to cPanel v86 (added feature OpenSSL 1.1.1). It looks like TLS 1.3 protocol is enabled however when I enter terminal command:
Code:
openssl version
The OpenSSL version displayed is OpenSSL 1.0.2k-fips.

Should the system show the new version of OpenSSL 1.1.1 and not display the previous version on the system, OpenSSL 1.0.2k? Or do I need to update OpenSSL via the OS? Any help or information would be much appreciated. Thanks.
