from source. Fips is compiled into Apache statically. This includes the steps
 
to compile the FIPS module and Openssl. I build a prefork Apache2 because I use
 
a shared PHP5 module.

Some applications need those link references so I
 
copy all the files (not linked libcrypto.so libssl.so) to
 
a new shared directory /usr/local/ssl/lib/shared
 
recreate the links in shared to libcrypto.so and libssl.so
 
 
ln -s /usr/local/ssl/lib/shared/libcrypto.so.1.0.0 /usr/local/ssl/lib/shared/libcrypto.so
 
 
 
ln -s /usr/local/ssl/lib/shared/libssl.so.1.0.0 /usr/local/ssl/lib/shared/libssl.so
 
 
Remove the links in /usr/local/ssl/lib
 
 
 
rm libcrypto.so
 
 
 
rm libssl.so
 
 
 
 
 
The shared directory is used for application linking.
 
A direct compile for a FIPS application using: -L/usr/local/ssl/lib
 
Will fail if libcrypto.so and libssl.so links are still in /usr/local/ssl/lib
 
 
 
in /home/username (your working directory)
 
 
 
Download httpd.2.4.18.tar.gz
 
 
 
Download pcre-8.38.tar.gz
 
 
 
Download apr-1.5.2.tar.gz
 
 
 
Download apr-util-1.5.4.tar.gz
 
 
 
 
 
gunzip httpd.2.4.18.tar.gz
 
 
 
gunzip pcre-8.38.tar.gz
 
 
 
gunzip apr-1.5.2.tar.gz
 
 
 
gunzip apr-util-1.5.4.gz
 
 
 
 
 
Install PCRE
 
 
 
tar -xvf pcre-8.38.tar
 
 
 
cd /home/username/pcre-8.38
 
 
 
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/pcre
 
 
 
make
 
 
 
make install
 
 
 
 
 
Install Apache2(httpd) with apr
 
 
 
tar -xvf httpd.2.4.18.tar
 
 
 
cd httpd.2.4.18
 
 
 
cd srclib (subdirectory)
 
 
 
cp /home/username/apr-1.5.2.tar
 
 
 
cp /home/username/apr-util-1.5.4.tar
 
 
 
tar -xvf apr-1.5.2.tar
 
 
 
tar -xvf apr-util-1.5.4.tar
 
 
 
 
 
create two links - they are needed when apache compiles
 
 
 
ln -s apr-1.5.2 apr
 
 
 
ln -s apr-util-1.5.4 apr-util
 
 
 
 
 
cd .. (back to /home/username/httpd.2.4.18)
 
 
 
NOTE:  
 
 
 
the --enable-ssl-staticlib-deps and --enable-mods-static=ssl
 
are to compile the Openssl module STATIC not shared.
 
If you leave them out, it will properly create a working apache2
 
server EXCEPT when you enable the "SSLFIPS on" in httpd.conf, then
 
apache2 will not start and you will get a FIPS fingerprint error
 
in the logs/error_log file.
 
 
 
Procedure below is to compile OpenSSL as a static module in apache2
 
 
 
The two export(s) below sets the proper FIPS fingerprint variables.
 
The configure compiles a STATIC Openssl (mod_ssl.so) into Apache2.
 
 
 
export CC=/usr/local/ssl/fips-2.0/bin/fipsld
 
 
 
export FIPSLD_CC=/usr/bin/gcc
 
 
 
execute configure with switches a space between each switch
 
 
 
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache2
 
    --with-mpm=prefork
 
    --enable-ssl
 
    --with-ssl=/usr/local/ssl
 
    --enable-ssl-staticlib-deps
 
    --enable-mods-static=ssl
 
    --with-pcre=/usr/local/pcre
 
    --with-included-apr
 
 
make
 
 
 
make install
 
 
 
 
 
I need PHP(with mysql) - so I built the share module libphp5.so
 
and placed a copy in /usr/local/apache2/modules/
 
 
 
In the httpd.conf file "Loadmodule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so"
 
has to be commented out. In a shared version it must be active.
 
The --with-mpm=prefork option allows me to use a compiled shared
 
PHP5 module, the "event"(threaded) version didn't load PHP properly.
 
There are some other changes needed in the httpd.conf file (on internet)
 
on allowing Apache2 to recognize the .php extension.
 
 
 
to start: /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start
 
 
 
to stop: /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl stop
 
 
 
Start apache and confirm it is running.
