    Can anyone inform me how to update to OpenSSL 0.9.8k
    I tried to compile it manualt but cpanel's easy apache does not
    use it. it uses the old version. I can't get yum to update to OpenSSL 0.9.8k
    either.

    I want to get the errors....

    [Wed Jun 24 17:36:28 2009] [error] [client xx.xxx.xxx.xxx] Invalid method in request \x16\x03\x01
    [Wed Jun 24 17:36:28 2009] [error] [client xx.xxx.xxx.xxx] File does not exist: /usr/local/apache/htdocs/501.shtml

    to stop filling up my apache error_log!

    These errors happen when you connect to a non-SSL ip/port using SSL.

    To see it in action just tail -f /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log and open a browser to https://example.com:80/

    The most likely reason for these filling up your error log is that someone is attempting to connect using HTTPS to an IP address that has no SSL cert installed. The fix is to install a SSL cert onto those IP addresses. It's highly unlikely that upgrading OpenSSL will make any difference in these errors.
