How to update openssl?


Hello,

I am using "Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 5)
Kernel \r on an \m

" and have "OpenSSL 0.9.7a Feb 19 2003"
I wish to update openssl to new version OpenSSL 1.0.2a.

Please advise...

Thank you very much.

I would suggest getting in touch with Red Hat on this. It is already on extended support so it will be good to have a check with them regarding openssl update.

At the same time it will be good to ask them on options to upgrade your system.

I think you need to update the entire system first. RHEL4 is no longer supported...

On the other hand, if you can't upgrade the entire system for some reason, you will need to install openssl from source, and install the utilities that depend on it from source.

I believe the library updates are no longer backward compatible with such an old system.

RHEL 4.5 is NOT supported
only RHEL 4.9 is and that is for CRITICAL security fixes only ( for that you have to PAY EXTRA)
and that might be over already

to update openssl

buy RHEL 6.6 or 7.1

To add to that, the latest version of openssl published for RHEL 4.x is openssl-0.9.7a-43.18.el4.x86_64. You could try installing newer however it may or may not be stable. Also as John said, RHEL 4.5 is pretty old. I'd update if it's a possibility.

Thank you again for all your reply.

Any ideas where can I download "Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 5)
Kernel \r on an \m"?

So that I can make a test server. I do not want to touch the live site using all those linux and openssl.

Thanks.

Either ask the company you work for credentials or else set up an active Red Hat subscription / evaluation at https://access.redhat.com/downloads yourself.

Check the CentOS kit. What you are asking for is a bit old.

CentOS 7.1
CentOS 6.6
CentOS 5.11

these 3 ARE THE ONLY supported versions

Please put some effort in and do research yourself. It is not as if this nfo isn't available via the vendors website.

With all due respect you are asking the wrong question and for the wrong reasons.
