You certainly CAN use mod_php with apache (mod-php with the pgsql module
comes with RedHat 6.0).

If you don't have a religious attachment to apache, you can use
AOLserver, which has a killer tcl API, and directly supports
PostgreSQL.  I am a little biased towards it, because that is what I
have used for over two years -- it is quick and relatively painless to
learn the AOLserver-enhanced tcl.  Version 3.0b3 is available now in
both source and binary form -- check www.aolserver.com for details. 
AOLserver is one of the most scalable webservers on the planet -- it is
right now fielding over 28,000 hits per _second_ at AOL's server farm
(more than one server, of course....). AOLserver is multithreaded, and
fast.  And don't let the initials AOL make you retch -- AOL just bought
the company, Navisoft, that built the server originally -- it is not
AOL's creation.  The original Navisoft people are still there at the
helm of this server.

If you prefer to stay with Apache, mod_php is , AFAIK, one of the best
ways of going about it -- it is very similar to how AOLserver does it.
