BSD5.3 - Apache included?

    As a backup server, I decided to install BSD 5.3 on a system & install PLESK 7.5.2. The only problem is I cant seem to start Apache or IMAP/Courier.

    If I type "httpd start", the system can't seem to find the httpd daemon file...it certainly isn't in /etc/rc.d or /usr/local/etc/rc.d.

    Do I need to install Apache separately? If so, what version do I install?

    I'm used to the RedHat EL PLESK autoinstaller which downloads the packages automatically (so much easier, by the way).

    Any help from BSD folks would be appreciated.

    OK - More info for anyone who is interested: I found httpd in


    although I don't know why it isn't in the /etc/rc.d like the other daemon scripts.

    I try to start apache using the PLESK interface, and nothing shows up in the /var/log/messages log file. Does anyone have any other ideas on how I might troubleshoot this.

    Apache just refuses to start!

    With FreeBSD, you will find the startup scripts in...
    you really do not want to start Apache using the
    /usr/local/psa/apache/bin/httpd. Doing so, will not
    setup the environment properly for Apache.

    I agree, look at the logs to see what is happening.
