Question Open SSL newbie

Hi, please can you advise...

We have some web servers and I want to create self signed certificates for
them.

I want to create my own certification authority keys and certificate, that will be imported to all web browsers of our users

And I would like to create certificates, that will be signed by my own
certification authority

I believe this can be done with either OpenSSL or CA.pl (not sure of the merits of either) ?

Question OpenSSL cont.

These are the steps I'm trying to achieve but having a few challenges with ...

1) Creating CA:
openssl genrsa -des3 -out ca.key 2048
openssl req -new -x509 -key ca.key -out ca.crt

2) Creating server key and certification request:
openssl genrsa -des3 -out server.key 2048
openssl req -new -key server.key -out server.csr

3) Signing request with CA (created in step 1)
openssl x509 -req -in server.csr -CA ca.crt -CAkey ca.key -CAcreateserial server.crt –days 365

Couple of things that don't seem to work -days 365 option (I keep defaulting to 30) and unable to omit pass phrase?
