How to build Openssl from source

Recently we had to install openssl but for the 32-bit platform. This is how I did it. wget http://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-0.9.8x.tar.gz tar zxvf openssl-0.9.8x.tar.gz setarch i386 ./config -m32 shared make clean; make install In general though for anything that you need to build the following command will work: ./configure && make && sudo make install

chroot sftp in AWS with likewise / pbis 7.5+
