I'm afraid I have made a mess with the version (0.9.8zg) of OpenSSL which was installed on my Mac. While I was trying to update it, now I have some error and for some reasons applications like Apache or Google Drive do not work anymore and they don't even start.
I would like to know which would be the best way to restore openssl to a working version without re-installing the whole operating system.
How can I do that?
Up to now I have tried to download
openssl-0.9.8zg and build it with
make install but it did not solve the problem.
Please help me if possible.
I downloaded openssl-0.9.8zg from the official site and I did the following:
./Configure darwin64-x86_64-cc --prefix=/usr make sudo make install
Now the commands outputs are:
$ openssl version OpenSSL 0.9.8zg 11 Jun 2015 $ which openssl /usr/bin/openssl $ /usr/bin/openssl version OpenSSL 0.9.8zg 11 Jun 2015 $ openssl version -a OpenSSL 0.9.8zg 11 Jun 2015 built on: Wed Dec 30 19:50:01 CET 2015 platform: darwin64-x86_64-cc options: bn(64,64) md2(int) rc4(ptr,char) des(idx,cisc,16,int) idea(int) blowfish(idx) compiler: cc -DOPENSSL_THREADS -D_REENTRANT -DDSO_DLFCN -DHAVE_DLFCN_H -arch x86_64 -O3 -fomit-frame-pointer -DL_ENDIAN -DMD32_REG_T=int -Wall OPENSSLDIR: "/usr/ssl"
Still the problem persists.
These are some errors I get: for example, when trying to start Apache, it says:
Syntax error on line 111 of /Applications/MAMP/conf/apache/httpd.conf: Cannot load /Applications/MAMP/Library/modules/mod_ssl.so into server: dlopen(/Applications/MAMP/Library/modules/mod_ssl.so, 10): Symbol not found: _SSLv2_client_method
Referenced from: /Applications/MAMP/Library/modules/mod_ssl.so
Expected in: /usr/lib/libssl.0.9.8.dylib in /Applications/MAMP/Library/modules/mod_ssl.so
but libssl.0.9.8.dylib is present inside /usr/lib so I don't know why/what it does not find. Is it possible to fix this?
Or for example if I perform
brew install libssl, I get:
Error: dlopen(/System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/2.0/usr/lib/ruby/2.0.0/universal-darwin15/openssl.bundle, 9): Symbol not found: _SSLv2_client_method Referenced from: /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/2.0/usr/lib/ruby/2.0.0/universal-darwin15/openssl.bundle Expected in: /usr/lib/libssl.0.9.8.dylib in /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/2.0/usr/lib/ruby/2.0.0/universal-darwin15/openssl.bundle - /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/2.0/usr/lib/ruby/2.0.0/universal-darwin15/openssl.bundle
Moreover Google Drive won't start anymore
