Hehe ... You're underestimating the ports. I would suggest you follow the following steps: 1) cd /usr/ports/www/mod_php4 && make install 2) Wait a bit for the download 3) Be pleasantly surprised p.s. I was going to just tell you what will happen, but I think it'll be more fun if you're just pleasantly surprised :) p.p.s. Yes, you could do what you suggest, and it would work, but I think you'll be pleasantly surprised that you don't have to :) p.p.p.s. Once PHP is installed, just go to the mod_frontpage directly and install it, it will add the module to Apache -- Bill Moran Potential Technologies http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
