It is not necessary to be a single machine setup.  I use single machine 
setup for development and a two machine setup for production.

Previously, it was possible to run FMS beside other services without 
conflict. Now it matters: FileMaker has claimed the webserver and ports 
80 and 443. Of course, it affects the machine running WPE.

For running web pages along with FMS
a. You can run another instance of Apache, provided it uses ports other 
than 80 and 443.
b. You can move everything into the FileMaker web directory.
c. Set up a virtual machine running BSD or Linux for your web services.

I do both B and C. On my devbox I use vagrant to manage projects. On the 
production box the VMs are always alive
