    Ok, try this

    Log into your machine with ssh (root).

    Once logged in,

    cd /usr/ports/security
    fetch http://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-0.9.7d.tar.gz
    tar xfzv openssl-0.9.7d.tar.gz
    cd openssl-0.9.7d
    make install

    Once reinstalled openssl, exim would build as it requires some shared files from openssl. Then update from WHM.

    Thanks

    Cool...Glad it worked out. FREEBSD is the last to be coded from Cpanel I guess and from what I see, they dont test much over there on BSD before they release anything.

    I am still waiting on tickets and bugzilla issues with Oscommerce. In the meantime, we need to fix the bugs for our customers and now do it ourselves.
