Solution Verified - Updated -


  • After installing httpd22 with mod_ssl22 from jbappplatform-6-x86_64-server-7-rpm repository and when "httpd22 -t" was executed to test syntax of configuration files, why does it return the following error :
httpd22: Syntax error on line 217 of /etc/httpd22/conf/httpd.conf: Syntax error on line 12 of /etc/httpd22/conf.d/ssl.conf: `Cannot load /etc/httpd22/modules/ into server: /lib64/ version 'OPENSSL_1.0.2' not found (required by /etc/httpd22/modules/`
