Add the following to your '/etc/rc.conf' file:


Then either reboot the system, or enter (as root):

    /usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql-server start

You will know momentarily if it work or not. You really should read up
on MySQL. You will probably need to assign users and passwords, etc.

Use the ports system to install both Apache and PHP. Install Apache
first. That will allow PHP to enter its information into the httpd.conf
file automatically.

You can start learning FreeBSD by read the material available here:


Just my 2¢.
