for weewx 3.0.0 up to and including 3.6.0, when you install weewx using
apt-get, it will also install apache2. it will also install an ftp client
as of 3.6.1, a new install of weewx using apt-get will result in *only*
the problem is that not everyone wants a web server, and not everyone wants
apache. in fact, nginx or lighttpd are more appropriate web servers for
many pi deployments.
so if you want weewx and a web server, the recommended way to do it is:
sudo apt-get install weewx apache2
and everything should just work. or, if you prefer nginx:
sudo apt-get install weewx nginx
