Meanwhile, I still have to accomplish many development task, some of which are classic web...

Apache httpd, mod_{fcgid,fastcgi} and PHP plus FPM on Webfaction

I love WebFaction. It is a great, incredibily cheap hosting provider that provides nearly-VPS hosting accounts. Why “nearly-VPS”? Because you have the possibility (to some extents) to compile your own applications and use them.
