Get the OpenSSL version

I often have to check which versions of applications we have installed our servers. Below I have post the method of checking the version of OpenSSL installed on a server. The command below should work with any UNIX based operating system. I might even work on Windows.

man@earth> openssl version -a

To find the non system or embedded versions you will have to run the find command. Shown below.

root@earth> find / -name openssl -type f 2>/dev/null

I hope this helps someone
