OCSP Responder is giving me a lot of grief. I've tried installing it from OpenCA, but it encounters an error at make. configure goes fine, and when I do make, it ends like this:

Making all in docs  
make[1]: Entering directory `/etc/ocsp/ded/openca-ocspd-3.1.1/docs'
/usr/bin/pod2man --section=3 \
                --c "OpenCA Contributed Manual" \  
                --r "openca-ocspd 3.1.1" ocspd.3.pod > ocspd.3
ocspd.3.pod around line 111: =over without closing =back
POD document had syntax errors at /usr/bin/pod2man line 71.  
make[1]: *** [ocspd.3] Error 255
make[1]: Leaving directory `/etc/ocsp/ded/openca-ocspd-3.1.1/docs'  
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

Assuming that you have compiled and installed libpki already (on which OCSP Responder is dependant), try to compile the Github repository's version:

  1. Install git: sudo apt-get install git
  2. Compile OCSP Responder in a "openca-ocspd" folder in your Desktop: mkdir ~/Desktop/openca-ocspd && cd ~/Desktop/openca-ocspd && git clone https://github.com/openca/openca-ocspd.git && cd openca-ocspd && ./configure && make
  • It works great, after I upgraded my libpki. Or at least the make and make install does. The only problem is that: -bash: openca-ocspd: command not found – Wilhelm Erasmus Apr 14 '15 at 15:31
  • @WilhelmErasmus I didn't see the edit, you need to add a symbolic link to openca-ocspd (you probably can find one in ~/Desktop/openca-ocspd) in /usr/bin. If there's such symbolic link, just run cp -p ~/Desktop/openca-ocspd/openca-ocspd /usr/bin/openca-ocspd. Otherwise directly make a symbolic link (with the appropriate permissions) in /usr/bin/ – kos Apr 14 '15 at 15:57
  • I've found an excecutable: src/ocspd/ocspd has -rwxr-xr-x permissions. Not the same name as in the README though(openca-ocspd). Could probably just link it to bin that way. However, do you have any idea of where I can find the init scripts?(it's a daemon) – Wilhelm Erasmus Apr 14 '15 at 18:50
  • don't worry, I've managed to find the init script. The only thing I'm still missing is the config file – Wilhelm Erasmus Apr 14 '15 at 19:03
  • @WilhelmErasmus I can't check for it now, but I'll see if I can help you once home, as of now I have no idea honestly – kos Apr 14 '15 at 19:53
