As far as I know there is no OSXServer MySQL administration more then  
turning mysql on and off so no great loss using macports mysql.

OSXServer's HTTP php module is an on or off proposition as well.

If you want OSXServer apache and Server Admin for configuring sites  
but use php and mysql from macports this is easy enough.

Install macports php5 and mysql5 if you like. In Server Admin change  
the path to the php module libphp.so to /opt/local/apache2/modules/ 
If your macports prefix  is not /opt/local then change the path to  
where ever you install macports.
