Edit /etc/rc.conf and add:


then retry your command above.
It is nominal for every port that acts as a daemon to have a
corresponding portsomething_enable="YES"  variable.
If you really need to start it without registering the variable (e.g.
for testing purposes), try

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache22 onestart

in this case however, it will not restart automatically after system reboot.
