We build OpenSSL+QUIC separately since v2.4.56-2, installing it separately to /lib64 with .so.81.3 suffix to ensure it won’t interfere with your system libraries. You can safely delete openssl111* packages. On EL8 and EL9 please enable httpd module:

dnf module enable httpd:codeit

Since 2.4.33 we added brotli compression library. Since 2.4.35 release we start building Apache httpd against OpenSSL 1.1.1*.
