    Centmin Mod + LibreSSL 2.5.5



    LibreSSL 2.5.5 is now latest stable release https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/LibreSSL/libressl-2.5.5-relnotes.txt:

    Centmin Mod 123.08stable and 123.09beta01 Github branches corresponding to Centmin Mod 1.2.3-eva2000.08 stable and Centmin Mod 1.2.3-eva2000.09 beta01 have been updated to default to LibreSSL 2.5.5 for new fresh installs. For existing folks, follow below update instructions.

    Centmin Mod Nginx Update LibreSSL



    For Centmin Mod 1.2.3-eva2000.08 beta03, .08 stable and higher you can update to LibreSSL 2.5.5 via 2 steps.

    Step 1. Updating centmin.sh LIBRESSL_VERSION variable to 2.5.5. Best way is to use centmin.sh menu option 23 submenu option 2 for auto updating Centmin Mod code as outlined at centminmod.com/upgrade.html and at https://community.centminmod.com/threads/new-08-beta-menu-option-updating-centmin-mod-via-git.3084/. That will auto update centmin.sh to latest version which already has LIBRESSL_VERSION='2.5.5' set.

    Check your updated Centmin Mod centmin.sh to see if LIBRESSL_VERSION='2.5.5' is set. If not set and you do not have centmin.sh menu option 23 submenu option 1 for git environment setup, then you need to manually update and edit in your persistent config file (create it if it doesn't exist) at /etc/centminmod/custom_config.inc and add to it:

    Code (Text):
    # LibreSSL
    LIBRESSL_SWITCH='y'        # if set to 'y' it overrides OpenSSL as the default static compiled option for Nginx server
    LIBRESSL_VERSION='2.5.5'   # Use this version of LibreSSL http://www.libressl.org/


    Step 2. Then select centmin.sh menu option #4 to upgrade/downgrade Nginx recompile Nginx and specify latest Nginx version i.e. 1.13.0+ or newer.

    For example after recompile Nginx version output will show built with LibreSSL 2.5.5

    For 123.09 beta01

    LibreSSL 2.5.5



    You'll find latest LibreSSL 2.5.5 on official site.

    Looks like development branch has started for LibreSSL 2.6.x too with LibreSSL 2.6.0 https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/LibreSSL/libressl-2.6.0-relnotes.txt

    set in persistent config file /etc/centminmod/custom_config.inc to override centmin.sh set default LIBRESSL_VERSION='2.5.5'
    Code (Text):
    LIBRESSL_VERSION='2.6.0' 
    

    then run centmin.sh menu option 4 to recompile nginx.
