Subject RE: [users@httpd] Upgrading from OpenSSL 0.9.8 to OpenSSL 1.0.2a
Date Mon, 03 Aug 2015 22:39:27 GMT
This is a really late follow-up (my apologies).  I am now trying to
recompile Apache but am not sure I am following the correct steps.  The
command I found to use is:  nmake /f _apacher


If I am understanding things correctly, I need a full version of Visual
Studio to complete this recompile.  I don't have that software currently
installed and, from everything I've seen, it is not free to download.


Is there any other way I can accomplish a recompile of Apache 2.2.25 so that
my instance of OpenSSL 1.0.2a is recognized?

Hello Cathy,

FYI, TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 protocols are only supported by OpenSSL 1.0.1 and
1.0.2 series.

Since you have upgraded the OpenSSL version from 0.9.8 to 1.0.2a, It should
support the newer TLS 1.1 and 1.2 protocols. But, In addition to this you
also have to recompile apache, openssh and any other important system
components to make use of the newer cryptographic libraries from OpenSSL.

Good Evening,


I need to enable TLS 1.2 but since I currently have Apache 2.2.25 w/OpenSSL
0.9.8 installed, I can't do that.  So, I left Apache 2.2.25 in place,
installed OpenSSL 1.0.2a, and created the new openssl.cnf environment
variables.  The install was successful, the correct version is showing, but
TLS 1.2 is still not enabled.  Any ideas on what I am missing?
