Default freshports.org

Are the ports at this site for FreeBSD or OpenBSD or both?
Thanks,
Darryl

With respect to OpenBSD, several additional points need to be clear when interpreting the information presented on http://openports.se/:
  • Recognize that the ports mentioned on OpenPorts are those in OpenBSD's -current branch, & not necessarily those available for -release. The history of check-in's shown at the bottom of each port's page should be studied to determine what version is available for -release & -stable if either of these is the OpenBSD flavor installed.
  • If you are unfamiliar with OpenBSD's flavors, study Section 5.1 of the official FAQ.
  • Likewise, do not fall into the trap of thinking that packages compiled for -current can be installed on either -release or -stable. This is discussed in Section 15.3.2 of the FAQ.
As an example, OpenPorts will state that Firefox 8.0.1 is available for OpenBSD. This is true only for -current. The package for 8.0.1 cannot be run on OpenBSD 5.0-release. For those wanting to run Firefox 8.0.1, they will need to first install or upgrade to -current first.

Default Looking on openports.se for apache

Found an apache reference but can't find the package to download for OpenBSD, a lot of other ambiguous items but nothing completely straight forward. I know this is a basic question but find it hard to believe it would be so difficult to find - even with glasses on.
Thank you for any assistance
Darryl

The page you may be looking for is www/apache-httpd, & the package for -release & -current is apache-httpd-2.2.20.

Again, recognize that the OpenPorts site is specific to -current. The versions discussed there may be newer than those available for -release.

Also, given that you have not disclosed which version or flavor of OpenBSD you have installed, Apache 1.3+ is already installed on your system due to its inclusion in the base installation.

There are alternatives to searching the http://openports.se/ site:
  • You can install the ports tree & perform searches on it with the tools discussed in Section 15.3.4 of the FAQ along with the ports(7) manpage.
  • You can also manually search through the ports tree using the CVS Web interface mentioned on the project's homepage. The relevant page you will want to navigate to is:

    http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/ports/
  • Lastly, you can always connect to one of the mirror sites & perform searches on package names in the appropriate directory. For the i386 platform, this would be:

    /pub/OpenBSD/5.1/packages/i386

    ...assuming you have OpenBSD 5.1-release or -stable installed.
