FileMaker Server 13/14 installs and uses its own Apache installation. To allow Lasso 9 pages to be served via FileMaker's Apache, follow these steps (in sequence!):
Lasso9 can then be loaded: http://localhost:8090/lasso9/lux
FileMaker WPE can also be accessed: http://localhost/fmi/xml/FMPXMLRESULT.xml?-dbnames

FM 14 update
Eric, updated instructions allowed me to successfully install 9.3 and see FM 14 as datasource with databases and tables working! FM 14 takes over port 80 and 443, does one need to change these when installing (as one is pormpted to do now) FM 14 in order to let Lasso (or other user) access 80 and 443?
John: since version 14 or earlier, running httpdctl directly doesn't pass the required environment variables, so restarting the entire FMS service is required.
Gregg: the instructions have been updated for 9.3.1 (currently in beta). Be sure to stop Apache after installing Lasso, since the built-in Apache will prevent the FileMaker Server's Apache from running.
Still trying to Install FM 14 on Yosemite/Apache 2.4
Tried (many times) both 9.2.7 and 8.6.3 using Apache 2.4 connector. FileMaker server works, but Lasso admin will not load after making changes in this document. Worked with support and they have gone dormant. I would prefer 8.6.3, has anyone made with work on Yosemite with Apache 2.4? If so, how exactly (port numbers in FileMaker an issue on install?)? Posted this on LassoTalk, but posts do not seem to go thru. Thanks.
Also works for Lasso 8.6
The same steps can also work for Lasso 8.6.
No need to restart FileMaker Server after
It's not necessary to restart the entire FileMaker Server process after step 5. Instead, just restart FileMaker's web server:
sudo /Library/FileMaker Server/HTTPServer/bin/httpdctl graceful
