I usually follow the FAQ of modssl (modssl.org); that's where I found
the most usefull sample of openssl commands. I just cut and paste.
The signing of certificate is not done by me though.

If you want Apache to serve encrypted contents (httpS, port 443) then
your Apache server needs a certificate, and you can use openssl to
generate the said certificate.
If you don't plan to server encrupted contents, you don't have to
worry about openssl.
