openssl upgrade

Want to switch from openssl 1.0.2 to 1.1.1 on our CentOS 7 servers. The problem I see is that the 1.1.1 binary is openssl11 and the 1.0.2 binary is openssl. So, anything currently trying to use openssl is just going to keep using the older version. Should I delete the 1.0.2 version and then make a soft link from /usr/bin/openssl11 to /usr/bin/openssl? Ditto for the libs?

openssl 1.1.x is not backward compatible with 1.0.x, so you will need both until all apps that use it have been updated.
