IBM HTTP Server and CentOS Linux - Global Security Toolkit (GSK) not playing nicely
I'm breaking new ground, at least for me, with SSL certificates etc. within IBM HTTP Server on a current project, and have been expanding my knowledge of the Global Security Toolkit (GSK) on my own CentOS environment.
I've written about CentOS and IBM software before so this is merely a continuation of the series :-)
So when I saw an exception trying to run certain GSK commands such as gsk7cmd, I immediately assumed that I might be missing a shared library of some sort.
I confirmed this by running: -
$ cd /opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin
which returned: -
/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/gsk7/bin/gsk7ver: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I fixed this by running: -
$ yum install libstdc++.so.5
and was then able to re-run GSK commands, including gsk7ver.
More to come …...
