How to verify installed version of Openssl libraries for libssl and libcrypto and how to create soft-links

Resolution

Steps to verify the versions installed for libssl.

a) To verfiy the version of the Openssl library installed for libssl run the following command from /root/:
 
   #ls -al libssl*

This will return the return location of libssl and any already created soft-links.  (libssl should be in /usr/lib64/)

b) If a  soft-link for libssl.so.0.9.8 does not exist then from a command line enter the following to create the soft-link.
Issue the link command from either /usr/lib64/ or append /usr/lib64/ to the path:

   #ln -s libssl.so.1.0.1e libssl.so.0.9.8

        or

   #ln -s /usr/lib64/libssl.so.1.0.1e /usr/lib64/libssl.so.0.9.8

c) To verfiy the soft-link is created, from a command line run the following command from /root/:

   # ls -al libssl*

If successful you will see the additional entry with the soft link. 

for example:  lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root      <DDMMDYRTime>  libssl.so.0.9.8 -> libssl.so.1.0.1e

libcrypto - steps to verify the versions installed for libssl.
a) To verfiy the version of the Openssl library installed for libssl run the following command from /root/:
 
   #ls -al libcrypto*

This will return the return location of libcrypto and any already created soft-links.  (libcrypto should be in /usr/lib64/)

b) If a  soft-link for libcrypto.so.0.9.8 does not exist then from a command line enter the following to create the soft-link.
Issue the link command from either /usr/lib64/ or append /usr/lib64/ to the path:

   #ln -s libcrypto.so.1.0.1e libcrypto.so.0.9.8

       or

  #ln -s /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.1.0.1e /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.0.9.8

c) To verfiy the soft-link is created, from a command line run the following command from /root/:

   # ls -al libcrypto*

If successful you will see the additional entry with the soft link. 

for example:  lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root      <DDMMDYRTime>  libcrypto.so.0.9.8 -> libcrypto.so.1.0.1e
