Hi, sorry again for late response.

I think you're right, previous command threw lots (419) of following similar
08093020 T ssl_cmd_SSLProxyCipherSuite
08093050 T ssl_cmd_SSLProxyEngine
08093430 T ssl_cmd_SSLProxyMachineCertificateFile

I remember now that this installation (of OpenSSL) isn't clean (mix of
unereased prepackaged binaries and source compiled).

would probably show that to be the case. If it is and the problems are

I've already made a cleaner installation in another node and everything's
fine now, thanks.

The next thing I was going to suggest you do was to take a standalone

I tried this first and found that is not user related.


Thanks again, I couldn't have made any progress without this help,
