custom openssl engine on apache using mod_ssl

+1 vote

My custom openssl engine works fine, tested it many times. I wanted to test it using mod_ssl, but needed a patch to enable dynamic engine support.
Now the problem is, I get a segmentation fault, whenever rsa methods in my custom openssl engine is called. I am using apache 2.4, and openssl 0.9.8e. Has anyone experienced it before?

I am trying to compile httpd-2.4.7 from source, but i get the following error

"#error mod_ssl requires OpenSSL 0.9.8a or later"

But my installed openssl version is openssl-1.0.1e and I have specified it --with-ssl option.
Any suggestions?

We have Apache 2.2.22 (Win32) on a Windows 2008 64 bit server. It currently has OpenSSL 0.9.8.

We are trying to apply the OpenSSL 1.0.1h on the same, after applying the open SSL and copying the relevant files to the bin directory of apache server, we are not able to start the server. It gives an mod_sso error.

Any Suggestions?

I'm working on doing some upgrade testing to mitigate the Heartbleed issue and some other vulnerabilities. Part of that is updating OpenSSL, but I'm a bit confused about something and am hoping that someone can help me. I've done at least a dozen internet searches and can't find the answer. It's probably simple, but I'd like to find out anyway.

What do I need to do in order to update the version of OpenSSL that is included in the Apache HTTP server release? I've installed OpenSSL 1.0.1g on the server, but the older version is still in the apache /bin directory. Do I simply replace the openssl executable or is there some kind of change that needs to be made in the httpd.conf file to point to the newer installation?

For our project We borrowed some source code from the Git project and are going to license our code in GPLv2. But one concern is that GPLv2 is not compatible with the Openssl license. It requires an exception.
As far as I can see, Git also links with Openssl library. But I can't find an exception in the license of Git.

So what I want to ask is that, is it safe for us to use Git's code and link with Openssl library?
