Radiator log showed that it found these versions:

   Net::SSLeay 1.88, OpenSSL 1.1.1c

For CentOS 7.x I would have expected something like below:

Based on the recent Net::SSLeay and OpenSSL versions, it seems that they 
did not come with the base OS installation. In this case it's likely 
that, for example, modifying /etc/pki/tls/openssl.cnf does not help 
because OpenSSL 1.1.1c uses another location for its configuration file.

I see no reason why Net::SSLeay 1.88 and OpenSSL 1.1.1c would not work 
with Radiator. What makes debugging this harder is that reproducing this 
may not be easy.

Can you tell what local modifications, for example, new Net::SSLeay and 
OpenSSL you have made to your CentOS 7.6 base system?
