Second issue is the DNS problem. Even if you have an IP number that hasn't changed in forever, it always could change without any advance notice. There are dynamic DNS providers that provide ways around this problem, but it's iffy and they all cost.
You would need more than just Apache and PHP. There's more software running on the average server than just those two. Minor things like Bind are pretty much a requirement. As would some sort of Database software such as MySQL.
Lastly, you would have to have an exceptionally fast DSL/Cable stream to even think about it if your site was going to be anything close to commercial level. The average high-speed connection is really only high speed on the download side of things. Uploading speeds typically run in the 90-200 kbps range. A typical server will run in the 2 Gigabyte per second range on the upper end.
So with a typical DSL/Cable set up even having 1 or 2 visitors to your site at one time is going to make it load slowly. If you're not using your connection for anything else at that moment.
It's simply not worth the effort these days with colo servers being so terribly inexpensive.

Jill, does your sister know that she can get a real server for about half that amount?
