Security update seems to break mod_ssl.so module
Authored by: professor on Apr 03, '03 10:43:58AM

I can't verify this myself, as I've long since moved on to Apache 2.x.

But something doesn't sound right here. The update replaced the OpenSSL shared libraries with newer ones. This could break an old version of mod_ssl which was compiled against an older version of OpenSSL.

The update did not (according to Apple) replace mod_ssl so, unless your copy was pooched for some unrelated reason, replacing it from backup would not cure anything.

Downgrading your OpenSSL libraries, however, would be a very bad idea.

You make some valid points but according to the receipts, etc. the openssl libraries weren't updated, only libssl.so which was updated in binary form, precompiled against new openssl libraries... and to clarify, I believe I was running Apple's Apache binary as mod_hfs and mod_rendezvous worked w/o problem.

I wasn't sure about what was wrong until I read a post on Slashdot that mentioned the libssl.so update. Until then I thought I had a corrupted database or something.
