 Restart Apache (`sudo /opt/local/apache2/bin/apachectl -k restart`) and verify that everything's running. You should now be able to go to http://localhost/manual/ to access the manual, and you should be able to access your personal user web site at http://localhost/~username/, where "username" is your login id.
-  '''''Note:''''' When you upgrade your Apache installation (e.g., `sudo port upgrade apache2`), be aware that the upgrade will not affect your `httpd.conf` file, but '''it will overwrite the other configuration files''', such as the `httpd-userdir.conf` file (see #8605). Therefore, if you've made any changes to those files (e.g., activating User web pages), you will need to save your `httpd-userdir.conf` file before upgrading and then reapply your changes after the upgrade. However, it would probably be a good idea to save your `httpd.conf` file too, just to be safe. 
+  '''''Note:''''' When upgrading your Apache installation, MacPorts will not overwrite or in any way alter your httpd.conf or any of the extra configuration files. You may still want to back up your configuration files from time to time, just to be safe. When upgrading to a newer version, you may also want to compare your configuration file to the current sample files, in case things have changed.
