disabling SSL compression Debian7 OpenSSL

Postby debianjohn » 2017-11-18 01:46

running Debian7 with server application which can't be run on Debian8, I have a probem with OpenSSL. Under Debian7 OpenSSL runs with compression and that should be avoided. Under Debian8 SSL compression is a no-go. OpenSSL package is installed via apt.
Now I got 2 questions:
How can I disable SSL compression in Debian7 ? This would be my preferred methode.
If that is not possible, any advise in regards to installing OpenSSL from Debian8 into Debian7 ?

As Debian is still quite new to me, any help is very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Disable SSL compression for a webserver (which one, apache?) or globally?
Assuming the latter, try the SSLCompression apache option (not sure if the version in wheezy supports this though). Alternatively, the OPENSSL_NO_DEFAULT_ZLIB environment variable may be of interest.

You should really look at upgrading this "web application" of yours to run on a more modern release though, LTS support for Wheezy ends 31st May 2018.
