Using the Admin CLI- Questions

I'm prepping to update our v16 servers to v17 and making an instruction sheet to follow so I don't miss anything.  I have never used the CLI before, but I'll have to with v17 as some of the settings I need are not in the Admin Console anymore.  That's not a problem, I'm glad to learn new things.  I hope this question isn't too dumb.


I've been going over the DeCorte/Blackwell white paper, as well as the v17 docs.


But my question is about the process to use in the CLI.


So I open the command line...

If I am correct, I do not have to cd to any folder, I can just enter commands, right? Do I have to login, or when I do a command, will I be prompted for a username and password?


example: fmsadmin set cwpconfig enablephp=true


After I enter a command, and hit enter, do I need to start and stop the server for the change to take place, or does the server do whatever it needs for the new conditions to be enabled?


Also- we use a two server set up with a worker box in the DMZ and our master box in a Server zone. 


So, I am guessing I have to do some CLI work on both boxes, such as installing the SSL Cert, right?  What about enabling PHP?  Currently, a separate web server connects to our worker box for PHP, so I'm unclear- do I enable it on the master server, the worker box or both?
