Ports intelligent?

Traditionally, when installing for a new Internet server, I have
installed everything from sources in a particular method.

This is a nightmare to upgrade, and would like to know if installing
from ports would be sensible.

MySQL, Apache 1.x, PHP, Vpopmail, Courier-imap, Qmail etc.

In which order should I install? I need to have mysql driven vpopmail,
and apache and php must talk to mysql also. IMAP support must be built
into PHP too.

How do I put this mess together sensibly?
