I have still some doubts about using apache, since it's running as user
wwwrun, so the database must be writable by this uid. But every local user
can get this uid by using php or cgi. Of course, I could start 2 apache
servers on 2 ports, but in any way, the apache setup seems to me quite time
consuming at the moment. So I'm going to start with a simple ssh-setup and
after a while, with some subversion-experience I can change to http or https.

Thanks for your answers, Peter
