CONF_modules_load_file(3)           OpenSSL          CONF_modules_load_file(3)



NAME
        CONF_modules_load_file, CONF_modules_load - OpenSSL configuration functions

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS
        #include <openssl/conf.h>

        int CONF_modules_load_file(const char *filename, const char *appname,
                                  unsigned long flags);
        int CONF_modules_load(const CONF *cnf, const char *appname,
                             unsigned long flags);

DESCRIPTION
       The function CONF_modules_load_file() configures OpenSSL using file
       filename and application name appname. If filename is NULL the standard
       OpenSSL configuration file is used. If appname is NULL the standard
       OpenSSL application name openssl_conf is used.  The behaviour can be
       cutomized using flags.

       CONF_modules_load() is idential to CONF_modules_load_file() except it
       read configuration information from cnf.

NOTES
       The following flags are currently recognized:

       CONF_MFLAGS_IGNORE_ERRORS if set errors returned by individual
       configuration modules are ignored. If not set the first module error is
       considered fatal and no further modules are loads.

       Normally any modules errors will add error information to the error
       queue. If CONF_MFLAGS_SILENT is set no error information is added.

       If CONF_MFLAGS_NO_DSO is set configuration module loading from DSOs is
       disabled.

       CONF_MFLAGS_IGNORE_MISSING_FILE if set will make
       CONF_load_modules_file() ignore missing configuration files. Normally a
       missing configuration file return an error.

RETURN VALUE
       These functions return 1 for success and a zero or negative value for
       failure. If module errors are not ignored the return code will reflect
       the return value of the failing module (this will always be zero or
       negative).
