Web-based applications will generally install into a subdirectory of /usr/local/www independent of what web server you use. There are some exceptions -- eg. cacti installs into /usr/local/share/cacti This means that you will have to make provision in your httpd.conf (or whatever the equivalent is for the webserver you're using) so that the filesystem space the application lives in is mapped into the URL-space provided by your webserver. In apache, that typically means setting up an alias and then applying appropriate access controls in a <Location> or <Directory> block. Formerly many web applications installed into the apache specific directory /usr/local/www/data but this behaviour is now discouraged. It's not, AFAIK, absolutely forbidden, but you'ld have a hard time getting a new port through committal if it behaved like that. I don't think there has been a concerted effort to find all of the older ports that install under /usr/local/www/data and modify them; rather individual maintainers are expected to modify their ports as the occasion arises.
