This article shows how I finally managed to get Apache installed with FrontPage/SSL.

WARNING: I suspect the tarball referenced by this article is very out of date. I make no promises it will work. You may well be wasting your time.

First attempts
My first attempts were with the apache13-fp port.  I had no luck with that.   There were problems with the install of apache itself and eventually publishing with Front Page caused problems.  Eventually, at the suggestion of someone else, I gave up and tried a more recent version which is not yet in the ports.  However, I now suspect I may know what the problems were with my apache-fp install.  It's great knowing such stuff after the fact.
Success
I was given a port tarball from someone I know on IRC.  I've supplied a copy of this file for you:

samples/apache13-fp-modssl.tar.gz

You should fetch this file, untar it, and then make the port:

cd /usr/ports/www
fetch http:/path/to/apache13-fp-modssl.tar.gz
tar xvfz apache13-fp-modssl.tar.gz
cd apache13-fp-modssl
make
make install

If you are having trouble with the install phase, here are the options I used to install my apache.

Of more importance is Installing a new virtual web with FP2000 extensions.
