|Are there development time proven substitutes for Apache2? [message #74923]

Yesterday I spent 4 very frustrating hours trying to install Apache2 on a clean updated Ubuntu box without final satisfaction. In fact, somehow, things have gotten so unraveled that I cannot even completely re-install to where I was having the original problem. |
((With rails the package bundles a lightweight web-server that I will guess is not expected to be used in production but is included in installs because it is easy and effective to setup and use for development purposes.))
Yes, I googled up and found dozens of postings and blogs with related Ubuntu + apache2 problems. Clearly Apache2 must have an almost insanely clever system of configs including configs and environment vars to do what it must do under such a wide range of usage. There must be over 500 files involved?
Then searching the web (in desperation) I came across a PHP web server named Nanoweb that seems, superficially at least, that it could be, from my very humble beginner perspective, a possible substitute for Apache... (from finding to installing was all of 3 minutes before it was congratulating me on a successful install, something Apache2 is yet to do.)
So my question is:
Could this or another open source product possibly be a good development time substitute for Apache2?
(Clearly introducing another package cannot simplify things in total, but let's say in the spirit of the "sandbox" as a truly self-contained quick look environment to concentrate on Symphony, or as a documented "quick fix" for Apache2 issues?)
Thanks in advance....
