    Does anybody have any thoughts on running Apache on a Windows 2003 domain controller?

    I'd be leery of running any web server with access from outside your network on a DC. I guess it depends on how much you trust Apache and what risk you are willing to take.

    This is only going to be acting as an internal web server.

    As long as you don't think any internal users will try to hack your web site or Apache you should be OK.
