Yes, I was using 1.0.1 from noble:

openssl-pkcs11-sign-provider 1.0.1-0ubuntu1

And pkcs11-provider 0.3-1.

It's what I did. openssl list -providers works without further options, indicating the system-wide openssl config file is loading the module:

$ openssl list -providers
Providers:
  default
    name: OpenSSL Default Provider
    version: 3.0.10
    status: active
  pkcs11sign
    name: PKCS11 signing key provider
    version: 1.0.1
    status: active

I think apache is not even trying, or not able, to load the private key from softhsm2. When I start it in the foreground with -X, it doesn't prompt for the pin. And it doesn't change if I give the pin-value in the pkcs11 URI or not. More investigation/testing is needed. This setup is somewhat complex, involving multiple libraries from different source packages, it's quite possible I did something wrong.
