The FreeBSD Handbook, section 27.7, describes the installation of Apache:
My request is to update the handbook so it takes Apache 2.x into account.
Possible options include:
1. Initially add notes in section 27.7 where the current description
does not apply to Apache 2, detailing the differences.
Then at some later point, when Apache 2 becomes the preferred version,
this approach can be reversed, so the main description deals with
Apache 2, with notes detailing the differences with Apache 1.3.
2. Have a separate page describing Apache 2.x (less preferred IMHO).
A first step would be to indicate that Apache 2.1 and 2.2 are available from
ports. Currently, section 27.7 indicates Apache can be installed from either
www/apache13 or from www/apache20. However, there are various alternative
$ ls /usr/ports/www | grep ^apache
I would suggest at least apache22 to be mentioned, possibly even instead of
apache20, since according to the Apache project, 2.2.x is preferred over
