I tried to install nginx in a RHEL 7.2 machine, and i got an error,

Error: Package: 1:nginx-1.10.2-2.el7.x86_64 (epel)
       Requires: libcrypto.so.10(OPENSSL_1.0.2)(64bit)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Nut this libcrypto.so.10(OPENSSL_1.0.2)(64bit) is not available on default openssl package so i removed the current openssl package and installed using rpm as below,

[root@db-brm ~]# rpm -Uvh http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/os/x86_64/Packages/openssl-libs-1.0.2k-8.el7.x86_64.rpm

I thought it would solve the issue but it did not and it increase the conflict in openssl and giving error while installing nginx,

I could see this is the error,

[root@db-brm ~]# yum install nginx
Loaded plugins: langpacks, product-id, search-disabled-repos, subscription-manager

Seems like there are some problems with last nginx version. In my case yum install nginx-1.12.1 helped

  • Thanks this worked for me . Even 1.12.2 does not work .
