	Step 1 - a more moderen SSL version,  after wrestling mightily
	with a poorly-configured port environment has been achieved:

Server Version: Apache/2.2.26 (FreeBSD) mod_fastcgi/2.4.6 mod_ssl/2.2.26 OpenSSL/1.0.2n
Server Built: Aug 6 2018 20:51:40

	Steps 2 & 3 involve moving the site to a modern FreeBSD version
	(11.2) and apache 2.4 - stay tuned ...
