    Unhappy DirectAdmin on FreeBSD 8.2 x64 = No Go

    For the life of me I cannot get DirectAdmin to install on FreeBSD 8.2 64-bit. It always ends with:

    Configuring SAPI modules
    checking for AOLserver support... no
    checking for Apache 1.x module support via DSO through APXS... no
    checking for Apache 1.x module support... no
    checking whether to enable Apache charset compatibility option... no
    checking for Apache 2.0 filter-module support via DSO through APXS... no
    checking for Apache 2.0 handler-module support via DSO through APXS... apxs: not found
    apxs: not found


    Sorry, I cannot run apxs. Possible reasons follow:

    1. Perl is not installed
    2. apxs was not found. Try to pass the path using --with-apxs2=/path/to/apxs
    3. Apache was not built using --enable-so (the apxs usage page is displayed)

    The output of apxs follows:
    apxs: not found
    configure: error: Aborting

    *** There was an error while trying to configure php. Check the configure/ap2/configure.php5 file

    *******************************************
    *******************************************

    Cannot find /usr/local/bin/php
    Please recompile php with custombuild, eg:
    cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
    ./build all d

    This appears to be a 64-bit system.
    a common cause of http/php compile failures is mentioned here:
    http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=213

    *******************************************

    ln: /usr/lib/sendmail: Read-only file system
    and if I try to build apache first in custombuild (so that apsx exists), I have this problem:

    I'm confused because on the install page : http://www.directadmin.com/install.html

    it states its compatible with "FreeBSD 8.x 64-bit"

    mkdir: /usr/include/apache: Read-only file system
    It tells you its a read only file system. You have something wrong with your partitions.

    /usr should not be read only.

    Must be from the jailing (ie: ezjail's way of saving space by linking to basejail would be my guess).

    is there any way round this?
    has anyone successfully installed DA on an ezjail config?
