To echo the comments so far, Apache2 and perfork.
Apache2 has been out and recommended by the Apache people (up until 2.2
was declared stable) for something like five years. I've been running it
for about that long on a web hosting operation and had no trouble with it.
Depending what you're developing, you might consider using suPHP to run
your PHP scripts under a user specified for each web site. (That lets
you run different versions of PHP on different sites or in different
folders if you get creative with the configuration, too.) That runs PHP
using the CGI SAPI but it allows the PHP binary to be outside the
document root of the web site so most of the security issues mentioned
in the PHP documentation do not apply.
