Well, I thought a 'real' apache web server was supposed to 
be a dedicated machine, not running other services that you 
mention above.

So that would imply a minimal system, only running the 
Apache daemon, and nothing else that is not required to 
support the web server. This machine would be made as secure 
as possible, and regular security updates applied.

There are dozens of other services that need to be locked 
down securely, but I do not see what relevance they have in 
running a dedicated web server. Maybe I'm missing something 



In theory, theory and practice are the same;
In practice they are not.
