The port version installs a startup script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/
If you don't use the port version, you'll need to create your own
Better to use the port version

Because it's disabled in the config as it's a security risk.
Better to ssh as a normal user and use sudo/su as appropriate.
If you really must, you can edit the config
