I'm trying to setup a FAMP stack for the first time ever, it's going pretty well.

One small but helpful simplification could be made:

The default /usr/local/etc/apache24/httpd.conf file, around line 148, has the following commented out by default: 

#LoadModule ssl_module libexec/apache24/mod_ssl.so

These days almost everyone wants https.  Even if you don't end up using https, as best as I can tell there's no harm in having that uncommented by default.

It'd be one less step for newbies like me, making things a little easier/faster.
