OpenSSL and Apache


Hello,

If you update OpenSSL to .9.8o do you have to recompile apache (2.0.63) or just restart httpd? (something else afterwards maybe)

Thanks.

It depends - which distribution are you running?

On most distributions (ie. ones with a dependency-resolving package manager) this isn't a concern. If you are using a source-based distribution (like Gentoo) then this might quantify a recompiling of Apache.

Can you safely restart the httpd service (meaning can you restart the service and not have to worry about taking an entire corporation off the e-grid)?

Hi,

If mod_ssl is a built-in apache module, you need to recompile apache. If it's a DSO you have to only recompile the module and restart apache.
