MOD_SSL is the interface apache uses to communicate with OpenSSL which is a cryptographic engine. OpenSSL does the work, whilst MOD_SSL provides the functions which allow Apache to use OpenSSLs features...

Mikey.  Under services, description, I have Apache/2.2.3 win32 mod_ssl/2.2.3 Open SSL /0.9.8d.  What's the correct upgrade path for this?  Can I upgrade Open SSL only not the Mod portion? What's the latest Apache Open SSL?

The issue with just upgrading OpenSSL is the compatibility with Apache and MOD_SSL, personally I would stick to the versions included with apache as these will be tested to ensure compatibility.

The lastest windows compatible installer for Apache is here:

http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi

Then you want "Apache HTTP Server 2.2.22 (httpd)"

and you'll want the version with Mod_SSL/OpenSSL.
