A) where did you get the idea that you could do this? B) After you deleted the 0.9.8 symbolic links, did you put the original library back? – DerfK Aug 2 '12 at 0:10
next time youre up for an adventure, try deleting – Mike Pennington Aug 2 '12 at 1:18

You're going to need to reinstall the old libraries somehow, either by finding the SSL package online (like here) and downloading it to the server somehow (good luck with that), then running

dpkg -i libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-4squeeze13_amd64.deb

to install the package again.
