Hello,

I have installed latest version of openSSL in my server after downloading the RPM. Once I have installed, do I have to compile/re-compile all services like apache, webmail, etc with the new openSSL version?

If so, what are the steps I have to follow after installing the latest version of openSSL from RPM?
so that I can make sure that all services are using the Latest OPenSSL version.

Regards,
Hari

Hello,

Could you provide some more information about your OS version, the version of OpenSSL you upgraded to, and some background information on what requires the newer version? It's generally advised to use the OpenSSL version supplied by your OS vendor (e.g. CentOS). Manually upgrading to a newer version is unsupported, and might result in unexpected behavior.

Thank you.
