Centos 8 vanilla Server - Rstudio wont start - libssl

Rstudio Server won't start on vanilla Centos 8 due to

> /usr/lib/rstudio-server/bin/rserver: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.10: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Any ideas how to fix this?

This libssl.so.10 library is missing on your installation and you need to install it before running RServer. You can google which library you should install exactly, it's probably openssl-dev or something.

Note that we only recently released a version of RStudio Server that is compatible with CentOS 8. The older versions that were build for CentOS 6 and 7 won't work there.

If that's indeed the case for you, you can find a version of RStudio Server built for CentOS 8 here: Download RStudio Server for Red Hat/CentOS - RStudio.
