Has anyone built apache on a hardware appliance before? I am trying to build an appliance running on apache and is currently looking for feedbacks for the hardware to be used.

I am currently looking at a Dell 1U server but is hoping to find something more 'lightweight' and compact. Preferbly without any I/O devices.

By the way, is there any way to compile apache to run on Mac OS?

Well apache needs some mininal OS to run on. If you want no I/O you could start from a flash drive or so and run than all stuff in a huge ram disc for example.

compiling apache on mac os X is pretty easy. Just download the source code and the dependencies. Than

./configure .... YOUR OPTIONS
make install
make clean
