I have some questions about upgrade the ports.

Hello,

You mean things like exim, proftpd and vm-pop3d? You'd download the new files (http://files.directadmin.com/services/freebsd5.1/), remove the old port and install the new one. (pkg_delete, pkg_add)

hi
thanks for the fast answer.
I mean the other ports.
it is safe to upgrade all ports via portupgrade?
In debian i upgrade everything with apt-get update && apt-get upgrade.
It is possible to do this and in freebsd?
I understand that freebsd ports is diferent but how i can upgrade the ports (for security reasons) so i can have secure box?
