compatibility between apache 2.0.* and different openssl versions
Hallo openssl user-community,
I am running 2 apache webservers version 2.0.54
compiled with an openssl version 0.9.7d on solaris 8
and 9 machines. However because of security reasons, I
would like to install a new version of openssl 0.9.7i
without having to recompile apache from scratch.
I am not sure whether my apache webserver will still
run without any problems. Can anyone help me here ?
What if instead of installing openssl 0.9.7i, I
install openssl version 0.9.8 ?
In connection to with this I have general questions
regarding openssl versions:
1. are openssl versions backward compatible within
their major releases e.g openssl 0.9.7* (0.9.7c,
0.9.7d ....... 0.9.7i ) ?
2. are openssl versions backward compatible between
their major releases e.g openssl 0.9.7* and 0.9.8* ?
