    About 3 days ago our web server started refusing FTP connections. We tried a few things and then went on to restart it. Here is the error we received.


    root@web03 [~]# /usr/sbin/proftpd
    /usr/sbin/proftpd: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    root@web03 [~]#


    We could not find this file on our system.
    Here is what I have done and problems.

    1.) Tried installing the latest RPM for Proftpd.
    2.) Tried installiung latest OPENSSL RPM

    After doing a bit of research, it seems you may be able to solve issue by compliing with a "--nodep" flag or creating a sys link to the libssl.so instead of pointing to the libssl.so.2 which does not exist. Our system does not have the libssl.so.2 nor can I find a version of SSL for Mandrake that even provides this, accrording to rpmfind.net .

    I am not very adept at Linux and any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Like me you need to upgrade your server with a new installation. I need to thank Feanor and p5 at powersurge for their awesome help on this one. If your going to colocate and run cpanel make sure you do it with a company that kicks ass!


    /etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd start
    locate libssl.so
    ln -s /usr/lib/libssl.so.1 /usr/lib/libssl.so.2
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd start
    locate libcrypto.so
    ln -s /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.1 /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.2
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd start
