    That's because you should have mod_ssl* and httpd* excluded in your up2date configuration as cPanel provides these.

    I use the following in up2date --config

    kernel*;php*;httpd*;perl*;mysql*;mod_ssl*;imap*;

    I'm still having the same problem:

    Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
    mod_ssl-2.0.46-32.ent requires httpd = 2.0.46-32.ent


    First of all I type up2date --configure, then I choose option number 9 (PkgSkipList), then I Clear the list by pressing "C" Key, and finally I press Enter to Exit. Then I confirm by entering again in up2date --configure that the changue was saved.

    ...Well, Then I launch via WHM the Cpanel update, and again the same error.

    When I Enter again on up2date --configure, I can see that the pkgskiplist is as I never cleared it.

    What I'm doing wrong?

    Thank you for your help.

    If you want to get rid of that message, you could do the following (be very careful):

    up2date --justdb -uf mod_ssl

    This will load the module into the rpm database only and not install it. Make sure that you defintiely use --justdb otherwise you'll screw up cPanel.

    Use the procedure at your own risk!

    Thaks again Chirpy:

    When you say "Use the procedure at your own risk!" what do you mean?. Is dangerous to do "up2date --justdb -uf mod_ssl" ?

    and another question: Do you know the reason why I Clear PKgSkipList and then when I run the Cpanel Up2date the list is as never I cleared it?.

    Thaks

    It could be that cPanel is ignoring the entries for some odd reason.

    The reason I said that was because if you accidentally install mod_ssl it would overwrite the one provided with cPanel. Howver, theat shouldn't happen with the --justdb qualifier.

    In fact, the command may not work and you might actually need:

    up2date --justdb -uf mod_ssl httpd

    There's always some risk when doing such things, but it's up to you whether you accept that or just ignore the mod_ssl error message.

    OK, I don't want to ignore the message because Cpanel shows that actual version of mod_ssl have vulnerabilities. I want to update to the last version, but cpanel don't let me do it.

    Ah. You have to rebuild Apache to upgrade mod_ssl for cPanel. You should not use the RHE version of mod_ssl, cPanel uses its own when you rebuild Apache.
