creating a newca

Hi Mick
I tried to follow your instruction on how to create a new CA. When I type -newca in the SSL configuration directory I get file or directory not found. There is a on the system, but it does not execute the script to create a new ca and enter a passphrase. Can you please tell me what I am doing wrong?
Thanks, Paul
