    Hi There,

    i've allready postet my Problem in the German Forum of ISPConfig and until now i have no solution for my Problem.
    Here is the Thread in the german Forum ->

    My Problem is, that the Installer ends with some Errors starting with
    I think this Error occures because on my Machine i have /usr/lib and /usr/lib64 and the Installer is looking for openssl in the lib dir and could not find it.

    I have allready tryed to install the openssl-dev 32 Bit Package but in my Yast i can't find it. The only Entrys i have are
    By the way - someone told me that i will crash my whole System if i try to install openssl 32 Bit manualy because openssl is a Core Part of OpenSuSe and if i manualy put the 32 Bit Version on it nothing will be like befor ;)

    I hope my bad English is not the first Problem on our Way to solve my Problem :D

    Then this person shows that he has absolutely no knowledge about ISPConfig and no deeper knowledge of compiling linux programs. Otherwise he should know that you can set different paths during compilation ;)

    1) ISPConfig compiles a 64Bit OpenSSL on a 64Bit system
    2) ISPConfig does not replace or interact at all with the OpenSSL that is installed by SuSE.

    SuSE releases before 10.3 had a package named openssl-devel-32bit that is needed, but it looks that 10.3 does not have this package anymore.

    Maybe you can place symlinks to the 64Bit OpenSSL in /usr/lib/ or suse has relaesed a replacement for this package with a different name, as several desktop programs rely on this package as well.

    OK - than - what i have to do now? :D

    On witch Files i have to put symlinks? And how could this produce a Problem when ISPConfig uses its own openssl?

    I think i show you the whole reporting of my install

    Is the openssl libs the real Problem or does i have some other Problems with my System? I'm now more confused than any time befor :D

    ISPConfig uses its own openssl for apache on port 81 and generating ssl certs. But your problem occured during the php compilation and php in ispconfig is compiled (only on 64 Bit systems) with the openssl from the system.

    You can try the following (if there are openssl librarys in /usr/lib64):

    1) Unpack the installer again.
    2) Edit the file install_ispconfig/compile_aps/compile and change line 51 from:




    and then start the setup script.

    The problem is just with the openssl libs.

    OK now i'm realy confused ... this is the result of "locate openssl" on my system.
    Could it be true that i have no openssl lib anywhere on my system?

    I tryed the changes on the compile skript and the result is nearly the same
    The only difference is here
    Could i do anything else now?

    Please try to set the openssl path in the compile script to:
