I would like to thank you for your work on FreeBSD ports!

If you want some testers... we are using PHP 5.6 with Apache mod_php, 
PHP 5.6 with Nginx + php-fpm and PHP 7.1 with Apache mod_php.
We are using MariaDB instead of MySQL but I think it is not much 
different. Plus we are using PostgreSQL and MSSQL extensions.
All of this running on FreeBSD 10.3 amd64 with OpenSSL from ports.

If you need some machine I can try to dedicate one old Sun Microsystems 
X2100 M2. The CPU is really old and slow (AMD Opteron 1210 or something 
like this) but if it would be automated testing I think it will be OK.
