Upgrade apache

from memory...

for apache:

$ cd /usr/ports/www/apache20
$ make deinstall
$ cd /usr/ports/www/apache22
$ make install

you might need to upgrade your /usr/local/etc/apache/httpd.conf as
some of the directives have changed between 20 and 22. when you try to
start apache it will let you know what's wrong.

for php:

$ cd /usr/ports/lang/php5
$ make install

make sure you select 'apache' in the menu list, otherwise you'll be
stuck with php5 as a cgi (who wants that?)

of course, upgrading to php5 introduces it's own problems, aside from
syntax changes in the language, you'll also need to upgrade all of
your php5 and pecl modules:

$ cd /usr/ports/lang/php5-extensions
$ make install
