Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 52492
openssl errata breaks mod_ssl (under some circumstances)
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of Problem:
If you first installs the openssl erratas (including
openssl095a-0.9.5a-9.i386.rpm) and then compile an apache module (for
instance php) with ssl support this breaks mod_ssl.
Since I am compiling php on my own (with different paramenters and stuff)
you may consider this problem for "not supported". That's OK for me. I just
want you to know that this problem exists.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install all erratas, including openssl095a-0.9.5a-9.i386.rpm and
2. recompile php with ssl and imap support
3. Install mod_ssl from RedHat CD
3. restart apache
Apache dies immediately when trying to start it, no messages in the log
a happy sysadmin :)
Remove mod_ssl or recompile the apache source rpm and install it.
This applies also to RedHat 7.0
This is my php config:
./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs --enable-ftp --with-xml --with-dom
--enable-inline-optimization --with-ttf --with-qtdom --with-gd
--enable-gd-native-ttf --with-imap --includedir=/usr --with-openssl=/usr
--with-zlib-dir=/usr --with-ldap=shared,/usr --with-openssl=shared,/usr
I presume you are using an old mod_ssl RPM which was linked against the
old OpenSSL? If so, then yes, that will always fail, since you would be trying to
load two different copies of the OpenSSL libraries at the same time - that's
never going to work.
