first, i just want to say that your tutorial is very clear and helpful.  and appreciate your hard works.

but i am a newbie of linux, still have one more question to ask.

when i install OpenSSL , following  is ur instructions.



    * --prefix=/usr/local/ssl
    * [default location]
    * shared
    * [in addition to the usual static libraries, create shared libraries]
    * zlib-dynamic

Should i type them in one line like this ?

./Config --prefix=/usr/local/ssl shared zlib-dynamic

and by the way, What does zlib do? i went to their web site, read some stuff, sitll got confused, i thought it  just saves some memories, am i rite?

One line will do.

Zlib is a compression library that allows your web server, Apache, to compress outgoing pages.  Zlib can compress HTML pages to 25% of their original size, saving you 3/4 of your traffic.

The directory block I was talking about was "<Directory />".
The first directory block in our httpd.conf, the main directory block.
The directory block that has nothing after the "/".
