    Hi All

    Question: what is the best way to upgrade to openssl 0.9.8g ?
    Can i replace original "openssl 0.9.8e" that is in ISPConfig tar with "opensssl 0.9.8g" and ISPconfig installations script (?) and re-run the ./setup instead of compiling Apache and PHP and everything again?

    ISPconfig seems not to look for en existing "openssl 0.9.8g" installed but it installs its own 0.9.8e

    at this point i have no clients on the system. (ununtu 7.10+ perfect server instructions + openssl 0.9.8g!)
    output from 'nmap -A -T4 localhost' and main html on report below

    Apache/2.2.4 (Ubuntu) PHP/5.2.3-1ubuntu 6.3 mod_ssl/2.2.4 OpenSSL/0.9.8e Server at Port 80

    appreciate help

    This is the output of your main Apache. ISPConfig comes with its own Apache (on port 81 for serving the ISPConfig web interface) that has nothing to do with your main Apache. This means you can use your distribution's package manager to update the OpenSSL version used by your main Apache. :)

    Thanks for reply Falco

    Before i proceed to my issue, i had a difficult time with logins, during the time i write the post the Firefox logs me out and when i login the page displays that ´Is it an invalid thread, please notify administrator ' :confused: so i do.

    Yes, it was a web stat
    please look at the output from ´nmap -A -T4 localhost' below on port 80, 443
    also 81 shows apache but not openssl version but in the souce it shows ´openssl-0.9.8e´

    I just thought that you had all the latest version bundled up. I constantly worry that some one can hack the system if it is not upto date, but at this point in time I have a router in front of the ISP box, ...... ALSO note the PHP version which is not the one you bundling up with ISPconfig (php 525).

    So to upgrade versions for ISPconfig to use them I have to to install all the packages in the correct order, as in - opessl, then modssl, then php5.2.5, and so on ending with apache?

    Thanks for future reply

    ISPConfig's Apache is configured to show as few details as possible.

    I'd just wait for the next ISPConfig version and then install that.
