    Just installed them...the installer finished just fine. But I can't figure out how to get access to them - via Terminal?

    Problem is that when I try to get the most recent copy of Apache:

    sudo port install Apache

    I get this message back:

    -bash: port: command not found

    So, where does this leave me (it does this after a reboot as well). I'm not sure how to get to Darwin Ports, I guess.

    Can't find my help in the documentation - it's pretty new stuff. Any help out there?

    Thanks, v

    fix

    I was having this problem as well. In my case, the install script had failed to properly add the path of the program to my shell profile. I use bash, so I added the lines:
    Code:
    PATH = "/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:${PATH}"
    export PATH
    to my .bash_profile file.
    or you can just refer to it as /opt/local/bin/port instead of just port.

    Hope that helps.
