[openssl-users] WARNING message "can't open config file” when running openssl command

Hi All,

I downloaded openssl 1.0.2e source files and built it in a Linux server. It seems everything working fine except there is a WARNING message, “can't open config file” always shown on screen when I run openssl command, see below for detail:

$ openssl x509 -in cert.pem -noout -text
$ WARNING: can't open config file: /usr/local/ssl/openssl.cnf

How can I eliminate this WARNING message even though the “/usr/local/ssl/openssl.cnf” file does not exist?
