[Csync2] Errors when running csync2

Sorry, yes I have verified that they are both compiled with ssl.

Not sure how to force "nossl"

I get a:
[root at glddb-master etc]# csync2 -xvv
My hostname is glddb-master.
Database-File: /var/lib/csync2/glddb-master.db
Config-File:   /etc/csync2.cfg
Near line 10: syntax error

Where line 10 states:  nossl glddb-master (glddb-slave1);
Thank you,

I am not sure I am that helpfull but looking at the code, it simply not 
possible to get that message with HAVE_LIBGNUTLS enabled. From update.c: 

if ( read_conn_status(0, peername) ) {
                        csync_debug(1, "SSL command failed.\n");
                        return -1;
                conn_check_peer_cert(peername, 1);
                csync_debug(0, "ERROR: Config request SSL but this csync2 
is built without SSL support.\n");
                return -1;

Similar for the remote in csync2.c which happens on the start: 

                        conn_printf("OK (activating_ssl).\n");

                        if ( !conn_gets(line, 4096) ) return 0;
                        cmd = strtok(line, "\t \r\n");
                        para = cmd ? strtok(0, "\t \r\n") : 0;
                        conn_printf("This csync2 server is built without 
SSL support.\n");
                        return 0;

Could you be running a different version than you actually is doing your 
ldd check on? ldd `which csync2` 

Can you try with

nossl  glddb-master glddb-slave1 

just to check that your config works without SSL ?

Just a little bit of insight as to how my setup "should" go. 

I have a primary webserver that should feed content to four public

Here is my configuration file:

group mygroup 
         host glddb-master (glddb-slave1); 

         key /etc/csync2.key_ehp; 

         include /home/www/vhosts/ehp.wr; 
I figure just for simplicity I'll remove any other complexities until I 
can at least get communication to work. 

I run csync2 -iivvv and I get this: 
[glddb-slave1 csync2]# csync2 -iivvv 
Csync2 daemon running. Waiting for connections.
