question 1:
If I installed wget from the pkg
pkg install wget
and then decided to installing again from port
cd /usr/ports/ftp/wget
make install clean

then what would happened???
Will the port installation overwrite the pkg installation? Or duplicated wget installation?

question 2:
If I installed a package from ports and after the installation complete, then can I uninstall it from the pkg tool ??

question 3:
How to list only and only pkg installed packages ??
How to list only and only port installed packages ??

question 4:
to upgrade port tree
should I always type
port fetch
port extract
port fetch update

or it's just enough to type
port fetch update ?

I'm new to FreeBSD using FreeBSD 12.0
Thanks you :)

It will tell you it's already installed and refuses to continue.

No and no.

Yes.

To update a portsnap fetch update is enough.

Ports build packages and it's these packages that eventually get installed. So once it's installed everything is a package.
