I had both apache2 and apache24-devel installed. Attempting to upgrade apache2 to the new version failed to activate, because it conflicted with files provided by apache24-devel.

--->  Activating apache2 @2.4.28_0+preforkmpm+universal
Error: Failed to activate apache2: Image error: /opt/local/bin/ab is being used by the active apache24-devel port.  Please deactivate this port first, or use 'port -f activate apache2' to force the activation.
Error: See /opt/local/var/macports/logs/_Users_rschmidt_macports_macports-ports-svn-trunk_www_apache2/apache2/main.log for details.

What you want to do here is reinstate the apache24-devel portfile, at the same version as before, one revision higher, mark it as "replaced_by apache2", and include "PortGroup obsolete 1.0". Keep this obsolete portfile in the ports tree until all users have upgraded; usually 1 year is sufficient. See:
