Description (last modified by Maxim Dounin)

I meet some bugs when compiling nginx with OpenSSL 3.0 Alpha1. I report it to openssl github, it seems that it is nginx that use the functions which have been deprecated.
The bug report is very detailed in the report on github,so I will not copy it again here.

Status: newclosed

There are two issues in the build log referenced:

  1. The bug in OpenSSL code which results in incorrect OPENSSL_VERSION_TEXT constant. This is to be addressed by the OpenSSL team.
  2. Various deprecations of OpenSSL library functions. These need changes in nginx. As a temporary workaround you may try configuring nginx with --with-cc-opt="-Wno-error".

Note well that there are also behaviour changes in the OpenSSL library which won't result in compilation failure, but will cause incorrect behaviour (for example, see here and here).

We'll consider introducing support for the new OpenSSL library. Note though that this is more likely to happen, if at all, once a release version is available.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
