    In the nightly cron email I see an error about installing an OpenSSL RPM. However, if I go to the server itself and do "yum check-update" it doesn't reveal that there are any packages needing updated.

    Here is the info from the nightly cron email (scroll down to the bottom in the window):

    Starting a few days ago, getting the exact same error during daily system updates.

    Running Centos 5.5 and latest cPanel stable build.

    Knowing that these forums aren't a means of official support, i opened a ticket -- ten minutes later I had my answer.

    Your mileage may vary. Before doing this, you should make sure that the errors you are getting are exactly like the ones I was getting. This worked for me just fine... and cPanel support is the best!

    You're welcome. I had this occur on a few servers I maintain, and this solution resolved the problem in each of those cases as well. Thanks should go to the cPanel staff though, who quickly provided me with the solution.

    Hi,

    since I used this fix I am now unable to use easyApache as it reports a conflict with the openssl package :confused:

    I've tried removing and re-installing openssl, but keep getting the same message - weirdly the nightly cron update does not report any errors :(

    Having just checked the nightly cron email, I now see that it too is reporting the same conflict for openssl i386 0.9.8e-12.el5_5.7

    I'm having this issue as well, does anyone have a fix? rpm -e didn't work.

    Not sure why its trying to install a i686 package on a 32-bit system either ????????????

    Thought it worth mentioning to the collective - I just started to run in to this issue (funny enough, over a year after it was first reported - and resolved!)

    For the record, I run VPSs, currently on WHM 11.30.5 build 6 on CentOS 5.7 i686. Sure enough, the OpenSSL conflicts came up in YUM as I was trying to run EasyApache.

    Running the command mentioned previously in SSH

    and then tried EasyApache and it worked great. So far nothing appears to be broken. :p

    Is this the reason my https sessions keep dying every few minutes? Every since Jan 30th https sessions imap secure sessions ssh are all having intermittent issues. Did an update to openssl break things?

    using easy apache as well.

    Did you try checking "yum update" to see if you receive an error message? It isn't the issue if you aren't having an error message.
