openssl 1.0.1 or greater in PHP -- hsphere only

If you receive an error with your php script about "openssl 1.0.1 or greater" is required, please do the following:

  1. In the domain's directory add a blank file called ".useApache24"
  2. Wiat 10 minutes for configurations to reload
  3. Your site will now use our apache 2.4 server that has a different set of PHP installs that are custom compiled instead of the control panel's default.

If you receive an error, such as "service unavailable", remove the .useApache24 and wait for the configurations to reload again and contact support about the error in the switch. 

NOTE:  This is specific only to the hsphere control panel at and not other control panels we use.
