Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 71972
mod_ssl fails after rpm updates of apache on RH 6.2jp
Last modified: 2014-08-24 20:55:03 EDT
Hardware Environment: i386
Software Environment: Red Hat 6.2jp with latest Red Hat official patches.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat 6.2jp
2. Install the latest patches from Red Hat (specifically
3. Attempt to use mod_ssl enabled functions in Apache.
The mod_ssl Apache module does not seem to work. Attempts to browse to a https
page on the server results in a segmentation fault in the apache log:
child pid XXXX exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
This problem does not occur with the base levels of 6.2jp installed. There
appears to be a incompatibility between the apache, openssl and mod_ssl versions
when the rpm updates are applied. The customer needs an official mod_ssl rpm
created that will work properly with apache and openssl rpm updates in Red Hat
Thanks for the report. This is a mass bug update; since this release
of Red Hat Linux is no longer supported, please either:
a) try and reproduce the bug with a supported version of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux or Fedora Core, and re-open this bug as appropriate
after changing the Product field, or,

of the upstream package, and report the bug upstream.
