I have to agree with the above.  Many people think Apache is a "heavy
weight" process the requires server class hardware.  This is
absolutely NOT the case.  Appache scales itself by using the "process
per client" server model.  This means as the load on the system goes
up Apache makes copies of itself that all run in parallel.  Yu is CAN
make use of huge multi-core servers with gigabytes of RAM but it also
scales down to small scale and is not a CPU hog and nearly
"disappears" when it is idle.

And as said, it is easy to configure because "everyone" who knows
anything about the web knows Apache so help is easy to find
