I have upgraded the openssl from source to version OpenSSL 1.0.1s for Apache, which installed under /usr/local/ssl/bin/openssl, and change the symlink to point it into this new installation directory and run the below command.

$openssl version
OpenSSL 1.0.1s  1 Mar 2016

It is showing the new upgraded version, But while using php or checking in phpinfo() it is still showing the old version.


OpenSSL support enabled
OpenSSL Library Version OpenSSL 1.0.1k-fips 8 Jan 2015
OpenSSL Header Version  OpenSSL 1.0.1k-fips 8 Jan 2015
Openssl default config  /etc/pki/tls/openssl.cnf

Please suggest me how to make this new version effective in all the places, I also have ssl installed on my site do I also need to Regenerate the CSR and Private Key and re-issue the ssl certificate.?

Thanks in advance.
