I am trying to upgrade from Apache/2.0.59 & mod_ssl/0.98g to Apache/2.0.63 & mod_ssl/0.98g. Some conditions (applications) do not allow me to upgrade to Apache/2.2.x at this point. The system is running on Windows 2003.

I downloaded and installed the apache_2.0.63-win32-x86-openssl-0.9.7m.msi from Apache's site. I then copied my httpd.conf and ssl.conf over. I also installed mod_ssl/0.98 (downloaded on this site a few weeks ago) by overwriting the openssl.exe and the 2 dll files (including libeay32.dll).

The Apache service fails to start and the message given is: "Could not start the Apache2 service on local computer. Error 1067: The proces terminated unexpectedly". The last line of the ssl.log file displays: "mod_ssl/2.0.63 compiled against server Apache/2.0.63, Library: openSSL/0.97m".

I would like to know if anyone has an idea on how to fix this issue, or can point me to a site where I could download Apache 2.0.63 and mod_ssl 0.98g (latest releases for both Apache 2.0.x and mod_ssl)?

I assume that it is working with openSSL/0.97m.

Any more info in the Windows Event Viewer ?

Apache 2.2 can work with OpenSSL 0.9.8, but Apache 2.0 can only work with OpenSSL 0.9.7.

The latest release of OpenSSL 0.9.7 is version 0.9.7m - which is the version included with Apache 2.0.

Maybe you thought you could install the OpenSSL 0.9.8g download for Apache 2.2 and get it to work with Apache 2.0?
I don't think you can do this.

You could recompile Apache 2.0.63 from the source code to use OpenSSL 0.9.8. See this post for some info about how to do this.
