I found that the ports installation starts httpd automatically using a
shell script in rc.d. It took me awhile to figure out that httpd -V
was pointing to /usr/local/etc but then everything fit. I turned on
the option to use ~username/public-html for the home web page
directory. If you don't use the ~ option, you have to add the pages in
the Apache home directory. I also have a script in /root/bin to start
and stop Apache. I haven't been able to get user cgi-bin to work but
that is the only problem right now.
