Description Tom Donovan 2007-10-17 09:25:31 UTC
Using OpenSSL version 0.9.8f (released 11-Oct-2007) causes each new SSL session
to log:

[Wed Oct 17 12:11:39 2007] [error] unusably short session_id provided (0 bytes)

This is not really an Apache bug. It is OpenSSL bug 1591:

Noted here because this causes excessive error log entries when OpenSSL 0.9.8f
is used with Apache.
Comment 1 Tom Donovan 2007-10-19 06:54:26 UTC
OpenSSL 0.9.8g has been released 19-Oct-2007 which corrects this bug.
