Update OpenSSL to 3.0 on CentOS 7

Use sudo when needed.

Install perl-IPC-Cmd and perl-Test-Simple:

sudo yum install perl-IPC-Cmd perl-Test-Simple
yum install -y make gcc perl-core pcre-devel wget zlib-devel

Download and install OpenSSL 3.0

Go to OpenSSL’s download page and copy the link to the latest version. At this time it’s 3.0.0. Then run (adapt the command to reflect your version):

cd /usr/src
wget https://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-3.0.0.tar.gz
tar -zxf openssl-3.0.0.tar.gz
rm openssl-3.0.0.tar.gz

Compile, make, test and install OpenSSL:

cd /usr/src/openssl-3.0.0
make test
make install

Create symlinks to libssl and libcrypto:

ln -s /usr/local/lib64/libssl.so.3 /usr/lib64/libssl.so.3
ln -s /usr/local/lib64/libcrypto.so.3 /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.3

Test the installed version with:

openssl version

You should get something like this:

OpenSSL 3.0.0 7 sep 2021 (Library: OpenSSL 3.0.0 7 sep 2021)
