In this article, we will install the OpenSSL package on CentOS or CloudLinux.
Please note that in some cases, this may be pre-installed by your operating system.
Via SSH, please run the following commands.
To check if OpenSSL is installed, please use the following command.
yum list installed | grep -i openssl
Output like the following would indicate that this is installed for you.
[~]# yum list installed | grep -i openssl
openssl.x86_64 1:1.1.1g-15.el8_3 @BaseOS
If this is not installed, you can easily install the OpenSSL package with the following command.
yum install openssl
