I only use the server locally on my local network so I don't need the SSL.

OK, thanks for that, I didn't know.

Agreed. I don't like to use Webmin except to see if I may have missed
something. It does not have the correct settings on startup.

I finally found that Samba was looking for a guest account - I had not
set it up. Now it's working ok.

I have not configured the SSL cert but no matter what I do, apache still
runs with SSL. According to the manuals, apache is compiled with SSL by
default for version 2.2.4. I have tried to # the ssl_module in
httpd.conf with no results at all. That was the first thing I actually
tried when I saw it was running SSL.

Show us your httpd.conf?

It's probably something as simple as uncommenting everything to do with SSL
in httpd.conf, if compiled with SSL, Apache likes to automagically setup a
virtual host using SSL.

There should also be a command line argument to apachectl or httpd that can
be set with apache_flags="--disable-ssl" (or something similar) so the RC
scripts know how to load Apache. Read through
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache-script, you'll get some information through that.
