Can't tell what you did wrong unless you show us what you did.

comment FreeBSD xfce not working
Typically, a user should be following the Handbook for such things, especially when, in this case, XFCE installation is contained there: freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/x11-wm.html

comment How can I tell whether my system is Unix or Linux?
The problem is, uname does not prove it is running Unix. It only gives a name of the OS which might not be a Unix system. Linux, for example, is not Unix.

comment How can I tell whether my system is Unix or Linux?
@JörgWMittag I see that the only version of Linux that is certified as Unix is an LDAP server running SUSE from IBM, but no others are or ever have been or probably ever will. my answer remains the same, though. If he didn't install Linux on a Mac then he's running OSX which is Unix.

comment Are there obvious differences between learning C on OSX and learning C on Ubuntu?
It should be noted that Objective-C is not what anyone would call "C". Yes, you can write a lot, if not most, of standard C using it but to call it the same thing would be wrong.

comment A fast and lightweight distro with GUI (for web development)
@AlexStack Let's not call them distros. There is only one FreeBSD and, yes, you can roll your own with any tools you wish. PC-BSD might be called a distro but it's core is still FreeBSD. The flexibility isn't what I meant by 'professional'. FreeBSD's goal is being a great operating system, not games or competing with Windows. But I digress.

comment A fast and lightweight distro with GUI (for web development)
@AlexStack All of the things you mention, I use on FreeBSD, but answering your question is not appropriate here. I suggest asking that question here, forums.freebsd.org , though it's been asked many times before. FreeBSD will be more difficult to set up for a noob cause it doesn't come pre-canned with anything beyond the basic OS. Check out the handbook. First advantage, you install what you want without concern for "which distro?" or the wandering around of all those, much of which seems to be moving away from the Unix-way. All the rest is too much to mention here.

@AlexStack As I write this, I do so on Chromium. I just finished using Inkscape, too. What else do you use that you think doesn't run on FreeBSD?

comment Configuring Apache 2.4 for CGI on FreeBSD
I'm not sure this is quite correct. It's been a long time since I've run Apache but I recall the same error the first time I tried it and switching shells, in this way, was not the solution. If you notice the error says, "Permission denied..." which is not an error from using the wrong shell and installing a package should have resolved that if the shell was the problem.

You don't need the desktop to do any of those things. Why don't you just ssh into it?

comment Why should you NEVER edit the /etc/shadow file directly?
@JdeBP Except it's not a problem at all and the BSDs store in master.passwd
