  1. I'm looking to start my Apache server just for fun but I don't know a lot about security and servers, is there much to do to harden the server?

    Apache by itself is pretty secure if you have a recent version. It is PHP and other active content things that provide the biggest security holes.

    If you are planning on serving static webpages then you have little to worry about. If it is going to be something using PHP, MySQL or similar then you should watch what you install/do and always keep the software up to date.
