Installing MySQL should be as easy:

# cd /usr/ports/database/mysql40-server/
# make install

This should automatically install the mysql-client as a dependency.

There are lots of tutorials online about configuring Apache to work with
PHP.  Just do a few web searches for something like "apache php
configure", or "apache php setup", or even just "apache php".  Quickly,
you'll need to add some lines like these to you httpd.conf file:

LoadModule php4_module  libexec/apache/libphp4.so
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

These lines may not be exact for your setup.  To test whether PHP is
working create a file in your webroot (probably /usr/local/www/data)
with only this in it:


If PHP is working you'll get a pretty page back with a lot of
information about PHP.
