They are not. Typical settings include old (and thus vulnerable)
apache httpd built with mod_php, which is _not_ safe.

First of all, decide how you'll split your system. I'd recommend
setting one (or more) frontends with nginx and put actual httpd
(recent version, built with suexec support even for PHP) inside
of an OpenVZ VPS (start from http://openvz.org/Download/live_CD).
Setting up virtual HTTP hosts and running them with separate users'
permissions is also a must. Putting MySQL in a separate VPS is
optional, but if you do, don't forget to assign RFC-1918 | RFC-5156
address to it (thus making it inaccessible from outside). Once
you'll need to access MySQL database from outside, use the SSH's
"-L" parameter (see `man ssh` for details).

And don't hesitate to ask questions: looking like a fool is much
better than actually being one.
