# cd /usr/ports/www/apache13
# make && make install
# cd /usr/local/etc/apache
-- edit httpd.conf to taste ie. Change hostname, etc --
# cd /usr/local/www/data
# ln -s /usr/local/bandwidthd/htdocs bandwidthd
# /usr/local/bin/apachectl start

Now...go to a workstation and type in a browser addr bar:


Hope I didn't miss anything ;o)

Apache is not as bad as people think. Generally, for bandwidthd, it
should actually work right out of the box, without changing
