I'm testing my SSL configuration for Nginx using Qually SSL Labs, but since my Debian 6 only running openssl0.98, and some ciphers needed latest version of openssl, I need to update it to the openssl1.01.
So this is the tutorial for updating the openssl0.98 to the openssl1.01
# cd /root && mkdir src && cr src
# wget http://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.0.1e.tar.gz
# tar xf openssl-1.0.1e.tar.gz && cd openssl*
# ./config --prefix=/usr zlib-dynamic --openssldir=/etc/ssl shared
# make && make install
Now I’m having openssl1.01 running at my Debian vps. But as the OS upgrading and patching here and there, maybe I need to upgrade my Debian 6 to the latest version, next time if I have time 🙂
