Auto-compile script for OpenSSL 1.0.2 for Linux


Tons of software still use OpenSSL 1.0.2, and the fact that different versions can't coexist in a Linux distribution is a big problem. My solution: Create a script that automatically downloads and upgrades OpenSSL 1.0.2.

Expected result from this script

This script automatically checks the latest version of OpenSSL, downloads it, extracts it, compiles it and creates a soft-link with a name that you can keep using without having to rename anything.

Getting the script

The script can be found in my git repository.

The file includes instructions on how to use it.
