One machine to run httpd + php and a separate machine for postgres is very
common and highly recommended.
For safety, I would recommend using a private network (192.168.0.*) to
connect the two machines, so your DB machine does not even have a public
IP address. Ideally, use gigabit between the two machines.
Be sure you configure your pg_hba.conf properly too.
