    Hello,

    How to upgrade OpenSSL on cPanel/WHM server?

    I did try but

    from Ssh ;

    root@host [~]# openssl version
    OpenSSL 1.0.0d 8 Feb 2011
    root@host [~]#

    I can check info.php

    openssl
    OpenSSL support enabled
    OpenSSL Version OpenSSL 0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 01 Jul 2008

    still 0.9.8

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    You may wish to review this prior thread that discusses the issue:

    What's it take to update to OpenSSH 5.1 or higher?

    If you are wanting to update OpenSSL for a PCI compliance scan, typically you can simply provide proof about the patches for any of the concerns and then pass the scan without having to update OpenSSL on the machine.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    If you upgrade openssl, its must to compile openssh also. Please keep this in mind.
