Yes, as I expected this is turning into a mess for someone who is unfamiliar
with Apache2 and
Subversion. Doesn't seem to be as easy as outlined above.
I did follow the instructions listed but nothing really seems to be

ps -aef returns:

0 61079 1 0 0:00.01 ?? 0:00.01 /opt/local/bin/daemondo
--label=apache2 --start-cmd
/opt/local/etc/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.apache2/apache2.wrapper start ;
--stop-cmd /opt/local/etc/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.apache2/apache2.wrapper
stop ; --restart-cmd
/opt/local/etc/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.apache2/apache2.wrapper restart ;

That is about all I can tell you.

Appreciate the help I received.

Was wondering if anyone can pickup from here.
