NFS for logs and databases are sub-optimal.  For locks, they
are generally lethal.  If the ssl_scache is not shared, then
the ssl_mutex should never be on shared storage.

Oh - and the path needs to be writeable by nobody and root for the
cache and mutex to both be created, and updated.  The cache file is
not held open, but is reopened for each update while the worker
processes are running as your configured User (usually 'nobody').
