OpenBSD 5.6

OpenBSD 5.6 was released to the world today. The first things I noticed was a hint of better laptop support via an extra prompt from the installer, and the fact that they have finally ditched a functioning version of the apache fork in the base distribution, requiring users to rely on either nginx or the all-new relayd-based httpd, both of which are provided in OpenBSD 5.6. I've already updated the walk-through for OpenBSD/nginx/MySQL/PHP-FPM (ONMP Stack). As Apache is now out of the base distribution, I will transition the OAMP Stack page to cover Apache2 from the package repository. I plan on working out the details of getting MySQL/PHP working with the new httpd as well, but that could take a while.
