To update PHP OpenSSL version, you can follow these steps:

  1. Check the current OpenSSL version installed on your system by running the following command in your terminal: php -r "echo OPENSSL_VERSION_TEXT;"
  2. Download and install the latest OpenSSL version from the official website or via package manager (e.g., or Homebrew on macOS).
  3. Once the updated OpenSSL version is installed, you will need to rebuild PHP with the new OpenSSL library. The steps to rebuild PHP vary depending on your operating system and the method used to install PHP. On Linux: If you installed PHP using a package manager like apt, yum, or dnf, you will need to update the OpenSSL package and then run the command to rebuild PHP. The process may vary depending on the package manager and distribution you are using. On Windows: If you are using XAMPP, WAMPP, or another pre-packaged distribution, you may be able to find an updated version of PHP with the latest OpenSSL included. Alternatively, you can manually compile PHP with the new OpenSSL library.
  4. If you are manually rebuilding PHP, you will need to run the following command to configure PHP with the new OpenSSL library: ./configure --with-openssl-dir=
  5. After configuring PHP, you can continue building and installing PHP using the appropriate commands for your system.
  6. Once the new PHP version is installed, restart your web server (e.g., Apache or Nginx) to apply the changes.
  7. After the restart, verify that the PHP OpenSSL version has been updated by running the initial command again: php -r "echo OPENSSL_VERSION_TEXT;" It should now display the updated OpenSSL version.

Note: Updating OpenSSL and rebuilding PHP requires some technical knowledge and may vary depending on your operating system and PHP installation method. It is recommended to back up your system and have a good understanding of the process before proceeding.
