I can't install letsencrypt with openssl 1.0.2


My environment:
Ubuntu 14.04
apache 2.4.17
openssl 1.0.2e

openssl is update from 1.0.1f

wget www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.0.2e.tar.gz
tar zxvf openssl-1.0.2e.tar.gz
cd  openssl-1.0.2e/
./config --prefix=/usr/local/openssl-1.0.2e shared zlib
make && make install
ln -s /usr/local/openssl-1.0.2e/bin/openssl /usr/bin/openssl
ln -s /usr/local/openssl-1.0.2e/include/openssl /usr/include/openssl
echo /usr/local/openssl-1.0.2e/lib > /etc/ld.so.conf.d/openssl102e.conf

I use

git clone github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt
./letsencrypt/letsencrypt-auto certonly -d www.xxx

and error occur

but I don’t use openssl 1.0.1

ldconfig -p | grep libcrypto

could u help me


You really shouldn’t update core libraries from source. Your issue is that the Ubuntu-supplied crypto libraries for Python are based on OpenSSL 1.0.1 and you just replaced it with a possibly-incompatible update. You have a few options:

  1. Remove your custom compiled OpenSSL and use the system-provided version. (best option)
  2. Build custom versions of all the libraries that relied on the old OpenSSL versions so they use the new version. (possible but a huge pain and maintenance issue)
  3. Try symlinking the new OpenSSL library so to the name that the other component is expecting. (probably won’t work, might cause major issues)
