1. Where are alt-curl and alt-libcurl installed by default?

2. Can alt-curl and alt-libcurl be installed in such a way as to replace curl and libcurl (since those are always outdated)?

Hello,

1. You can list the package files by running # rpm -ql alt-libcurlssl

2. No, it is not possible, as it may break the whole system. Please do not try to replace the system curl version

Hello,

1. Running "rpm -ql" shows that the curl binary is installed at /opt/alt/curlssl/usr/bin/curl which isn’t normally in the system path. If we were to place a symlink of that as /usr/local/bin/curl, would it cause any problems?

2. Are you saying that there is no choice but to simply leave the system curl in /usr/bin/curl even though it contains security vulnerabilities and is probably the default location (instead of /usr/local/bin/curl) used by many apps?

Hello,

1. alt-* packages were built especially to work with PHP selector and CloudLinux utilities, it is strictly not recommended replacing system utilities with alt-* ones.

2. Correct. We are tracking our upstream provider RHEL, we ship exactly the same system packages as they ship.
