Just a couple of months ago I installed APEX 3.0.1 onto an Oracle Enterprise Linux which had a DB (no apache installed, BTW)

I chose the Apache2 Oracle HTTPServer from the OTN (part of the Oracle Application server, but downloadable separately).

I installed it on a DIFFERENT Oracle home, and had to be careful with the environment variables (ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_SID). A couple of flawed starts of the HTTPServer because of messing the two ORACLE_HOMEst, so I prepared a script to start the HTTPServer with its environment variables fixed (the DB was set to start automatically with init.d).

HTH Cheers.
