OK, we're talking about two different things.

Translating that into "modern times", a Linux box *should* be able to competently run MySQL and Apache at the same time.

And it can. If it couldn't, Plesk would not be selling. In my job I admin servers that do web, mail, and db for anything from a handful to 1200+ domains on a single box. No problem there (mostly). But the load on the server's resources are, in the end, down to to what your application does.

There are several good reasons why you might want to put your DB on a separate server.

The grumpy geezer in me says you make a dedicated DB server only if your hardware and/or OS isn't up to snuff, or your RDBMS is a horrible pig, and that any modern desktop PC should have enough juice to support an RDBMS, dozens applications and 10,000 OLTP users.
