Then Apache changed its locations with Apache 2.4 - which we just updated in the  port file notes, and partially updated the MacPorts instructions on the WIKI. ( https://trac.macports.org/wiki/howto/Apache2 ) 

Well, MacPorts changed the locations where we install Apache httpd, when we updated the apache2 port from version 2.2.x to 2.4.x. It wasn't related to any decision made by the Apache httpd project.

macOS Server included MediaWiki? I thought it included a custom Apple-created wiki software.
