What is involved in taking my apache web server from http to https?
Is it a matter of adding or of replacing programs or of editing
config files?

It should simple be a matter of configuration file changes.

I don't know how simple those changes are on your system. (I don't do
much with FreeBSD.)

You will need SSL certificates. You might try getting them form here: https://letsencrypt.org/

The rest is configuration. It was well enough documented. I stopped hosting a web server a while ago but I remember documentation being under /usr/local/share/apache or /usr/local/share/doc/apache.

It is easy.

Not quite so simple, as you need some security certificates. You can pay
for these if you want, or check out (for example) letsencrypt for free
self-signed cert's.

I did get mine running, but it was a bit like finding my way round a
strange town in a good old-fashioned pea-souper.

There appears to be a plethora of FreeBSD ports of ACME clients
including Certbot:

Yes, thanks for pointing that out. I'm using certbot, and it seems to
run happily without attention once set up.

I had to sort this a couple of years ago - running a web site at home
for a small choir, I found some members' phones were so security minded,
https was mandatory. Chrome on my android tablet is equally annoying, as
it won't access what it thinks are unreasonable web ports; which I use
for marginal extra security. Some kit is too smart to be useful.

I also received some private email pointing me toward certbot.
