Forum OpenACS Development: Re: nsssl with local copy of ssl libraries

Posted by Gustaf Neumann on
I read between the lines, that the problem is solved. The detailed behavior what happens when someone is trying to link 64bit apps with 32bit libraries and vice versa depends on the OS and is typically not obvious.

From the experience with HeartBleed, i would NOT recommend to link against a local version of OpenSSL, but to use a distribution maintained version. The update frequency of OpenSSL is quite high. Keeping a locally maintained copy of OpenSSL up-to-date is constant work, keeping it not up-to-date is constant danger.
