Upgrading OpenSSL

This one works for me on upgrading openssl.

1. Check your openssl version

# openssl version

OpenSSL 0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 01 Jul 2008

2. Download latest version of openssl


or you may command

wget http://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.0.0d.tar.gz

3. Extract openssl-1.0.0d.tar.gz

Go to openssl-1.0.0d directory

# make clean
# ./config shared –prefix=/usr –openssldir=/usr/local/openssl
# make && make test
# make install

4. Done

5. Check the if you you have the latest version

# openssl version

OpenSSL 1.0.0d 8 Feb 2011

Enjoy….. ^__^

  1. I dont receive any error when installing OpenSSL 1.0.0d but I receive error from installing stunnel it says:

    error: #error OpenSSL library compiled without thread support ….

    This is weird, when i use this ( ./config shared –prefix=/usr –openssldir=/usr/local/openssl ) seems not working with stunnel.

    When i try installing openssl ./config without prefix seems it works with stunnel.

    Should you encounter error installing stunnel try reinstalling openssl with this ./config


    cd openssl-1.0.0d
    make && make test
    make install

  2. Thanks.

    It went fine…

    The only change I did was changed
    ./config shared –prefix=/usr –openssldir=/usr/local/openssl


    ./config shared –prefix=/usr –openssldir=/usr/local/openssl

    (two hyphen before options)
