SSL: httpModule
The AOLserver module that implements "normal" communications (usually nsunix or nssock) Typical behavior favors nsunix over nssock, if both are present. You only need to set this parameter if your site supports both nsunix and nssock, but you prefer nssock. (default , type string, scope instance)

This parameter is only important if your site, for some unusual reason supports both nsopenssl as well as nsssl and you prefer nsssl.(deprecated: see http://cvs.openacs.org/cvs/openacs-4/packages/acs-tcl/tcl/security-procs.tcl?revision=1.54&view=markup to make this work.)

If image width and height parameters are given values, the width setting will take precedence. If neither dimension is given a value, the image width will default to 100. Set this parameter to 1 to use both dimensions as outer size limits --handy when product image aspect ratios reach toward the extreme limits.

If image width and height parameters are given values, the width setting will take precedence. If neither dimension is given a value, the thumbnail width will default to 100. Set this parameter to 1 to use both dimensions as outer size limits --handy when product image aspect ratios reach toward the extreme limits. The aspect ratio is kept constant regardless of values used. (default 0, type number, scope instance)
