I just (in June 2016) ran the following instructions to update Openssl (in /usr/local/openssl) on my Mac, but when I check the version, it's showing that I'm using a version built in 2015 (the System/Library/OpenSSL version).
Question: what can I do to get my Mac (running El Capitain) to use the latest version I installed?
The commands I ran to use the latest version:
cd /usr/local/src curl --remote-name https://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.0.2h.tar.gz Extract the archive and move into the folder. tar -xzvf openssl-1.0.2h.tar.gz cd openssl-1.0.2h Compile and Install Configure, compile and install into /usr/local/openssl-1.0.2h. ./configure darwin64-x86_64-cc --prefix=/usr/local/openssl-1.0.2h make depend make make install Create a symbolic link that points /usr/local/openssl to /usr/local/openssl-1.0.2h. ln -s openssl-1.0.2h /usr/local/openssl
When I run
openssl version in the terminal, it shows me this output (the important part is that it was built in July 2015 and is the System/Library/Openssl)
