Question Invalid SSL/TLS toolkit base dir error while compiling Apache 2


I'm getting an invalid directory error while trying to compile Apache 2.0.49 on Red Hat 9. As to my knowledge the directory should be correct. My OpenSSL is version 0.9.7d and it was installed with the standard options.

[root@a151t7 httpd-2.0.49]# ./configure --enable-so --enable-ssl --with-ssl=/usr/bin/openssl
*** CLIP ***
checking whether to enable mod_ssl... checking dependencies
checking for SSL/TLS toolkit base... configure: error: invalid SSL/TLS toolkit base directory /usr/bin/openssl
[root@a151t7 httpd-2.0.49]#
Thanks for any help, guys!

You've given "--with-ssl=/usr/bin/openssl". Are you sure that's right? Mine is in "/usr/local/ssl/". The configure script will try to execute "<ssl-dir>/bin/openssl version", so try that from the command line and see if it works. *If* the "with-ssl" value you gave is correct, then "/usr/bin/openssl/bin/openssl version" will execute ok and return your ssl version info.
