OpenSSL

SSL library

Getting fresh version installed has been a problem for my InstaPaper and TwitterBot work.

Sept04'2017 did MacOsX upgrade as part of Incrementally Migrating To React-Native. Which allowed to me run brew update. But that didn't solve it.

Sept12: Tried a bunch of stuff which didn't work, but didn't log it carefully. So going to start over now.

  • (I'm inside my st Python VirtualEnv.)
  • try brew install openssl -> openssl 1.0.2l is already installed, but openssl version -> OpenSSL 0.9.8zh 14 Jan 2016
  • more detail
> openssl version -a
OpenSSL 0.9.8zh 14 Jan 2016

> which openssl
/usr/bin/openssl
  • try brew uninstall openssl
Error: Refusing to uninstall /usr/local/Cellar/openssl/1.0.2l
because it is required by watchman 4.9.0, which is currently installed.
You can override this and force removal with:
  brew uninstall --ignore-dependencies openssl
  • do brew uninstall --ignore-dependencies openssl
  • then rm -rf /usr/local/openssl
  • then brew install openssl

  • cd /usr/local/ confirm there's no openssl in there, so do mkdir openssl
  • try again 'brew install openssl`

Already downloaded: /Users/billseitz/Library/Caches/Homebrew/openssl-1.0.2l.sierra.bottle.tar.gz
==> Pouring openssl-1.0.2l.sierra.bottle.tar.gz
==> Caveats
A CA file has been bootstrapped using certificates from the SystemRoots
keychain. To add additional certificates (e.g. the certificates added in
the System keychain), place .pem files in
  /usr/local/etc/openssl/certs

and run
  /usr/local/opt/openssl/bin/c_rehash

This formula is keg-only, which means it was not symlinked into /usr/local,
because Apple has deprecated use of OpenSSL in favor of its own TLS and crypto libraries.

If you need to have this software first in your PATH run:
  echo 'export PATH="/usr/local/opt/openssl/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.zshrc

For compilers to find this software you may need to set:
    LDFLAGS:  -L/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib
    CPPFLAGS: -I/usr/local/opt/openssl/include

==> Summary
🍺  /usr/local/Cellar/openssl/1.0.2l: 1,709 files, 12.2MB
  • but openssl version gives same result
  • per that output do echo 'export PATH="/usr/local/opt/openssl/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.zshrc
  • and echo 'export PATH="/usr/local/opt/openssl/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bash_profile
  • derp maybe need to open new Terminal to test! success!
  • but what about inside VirtualEnv? Yes, also good!

(This page gives a little more clear/simple explanation.)

But not out of the woods yet....

Trying TwitterBot: Do python puppet_ebooks.py, get

...
  File "/Users/billseitz/Documents/djcode/st/lib/python2.7/site-packages/requests/sessions.py", line 486, in send
    r = adapter.send(request, **kwargs)
  File "/Users/billseitz/Documents/djcode/st/lib/python2.7/site-packages/requests/adapters.py", line 385, in send
    raise SSLError(e)
requests.exceptions.SSLError: [Errno 1] _ssl.c:499: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed
  • do this with Keychain to create certificate? No, that actually sounds like it's for server certs.

This page makes me wonder if the issue is that I haven't upgrade the requests library in awhile. So pip install requests --upgrade which seems fine, ending with Successfully installed requests chardet idna urllib3 certifi

Try python puppet_ebooks.py again. New error!

 File "/Users/billseitz/Documents/djcode/st/lib/python2.7/site-packages/requests/sessions.py", line 618, in send
    r = adapter.send(request, **kwargs)
  File "/Users/billseitz/Documents/djcode/st/lib/python2.7/site-packages/requests/adapters.py", line 506, in send
    raise SSLError(e, request=request)

Argh Python is still using the old OpenSSL:

>python -c "import ssl; print ssl.OPENSSL_VERSION"
OpenSSL 0.9.7l 28 Sep 2006

Python is at 2.7.13 - maybe I should upgrade that. I guess I'll try this method.

  • deactivate
  • brew update && brew upgrade python
Already up-to-date.
Error: python not installed
>python
Python 2.7.10 (default, Feb  7 2017, 00:08:15)
  • paste in rest of long script, then do virtualenv <EXISTING_ENV_PATH> - seems to work
  • do source bin/activate then python get Python 2.7.10 (default, Feb 7 2017, 00:08:15)
  • do python puppet_ebooks.py - get prompt back, no error message, but feedback at all....
  • check https://twitter.com/puppet_ebooks there's a fresh entry!

Back over to TweetBot page.
