Thanks for responding. I'm wondering

1. if the macports installation will create a new Sites directory where my 
existing pages will have to be moved, or will my web directory be able to 
remain in the same location.

2. if my existing PHP 5.2.6 will have to be removed (and how would I do 
that anyway) and the ports version installed instead?

3. After disabling the builtin apache server in the System Preferences, 
do I enable the new version installed by macports? Will I still be able to 
use the Sharing prefs pane for this?
