Help installing Joomla port?

I'm running fresh install of FreeBSD 7.1 (stable) and I've updated the ports collection and installed the following ports:
Apache
PHP
MySQL
Joomla

The Joomla install docs suggest pointing to http://localhost/joomla to configure the software, but my server can't find the page. What steps do I need to do to get this working?

Disregard.

All I had to do was copy /usr/local/www/joomla15 to /usr/local/www/apache22/data
This is not a prefered way if you have installed joomla from ports and want to keep it up-to-date using ports. You should instead edit the apache configuration file using a alias. More information here Apache 2.2 Docs and look at the DocumentRoot part and the Files Outside the DocumentRoot section.
