    Hi, Some time ago we needed to compile apache using /opt/openssl because of a bug.

    I'm updating this server and I want to use the system openssl again but I cant remember the procedure to set it back. I know it means deleting the files but I think there was slightly more to it than that.

    Easyapache says this...

    opt/openssl will be used as the openssl prefix
    If you experience problems or want to go back to your system openssl read this first.

    There is a link to a document which tells you how to prepare the server to compile with system ssl instead, but it has been removed - so now I'm unsure as to what to do exactly.

    Could someone refresh my memory on this one?

    Hi David,

    No, I'm sorry to say thats not the document.

    The document linked from easyapache provided instructions on how to clean out the opt/openssl installation and prepare the server to install the system verson.

    If I remember correctly, it wast anything complicated at all - it just explained that a couple of directories needed removing and the apache directory renaming before running easyapache again but I cant remember exactly and I dont want to make any mistakes. I'm just outside of my comfort zone with these kinds of changes so that article was very useful.

    Can you tell me what I need to do?

    I spoke with staff that understand the EasyApache system and the old work-around you mentioned. This old work-around was implemented using custom configure flags. You can simply remove the custom configuration that told Apache to use /opt/openssl to have it use the system SSL instead.

    You can find where this file is located in the following documentation: http://www.cpanel.net/documentation/easyapache/ea3custom_flags.html

    Sorry David I'm afraid thats incorrect.

    The document on your website that was linked to via the Easyapache script basically described two or three directories that needed deleting and to rename some files. It was not related to anything you have mentioned above.

    You will need to remove /opt/openssl and /opt/curlssl at minimum, as well as anything in /opt that may be linked against /opt/openssl. In EasyApache you want to ensure the PHP gets recompiled as it may also link to /opt/openssl
