Yes you can use solaris as an webserver. You could use it with apache standard.

Code:
svcs -a |grep apa
svcadm enable svc:/network/http:apache2

or via legacy run

/etc/init.d/apache start

But you can search google there is lots of information available about this.

Not just for Web server , with Solaris zones you can easily set up apache, mail, dhcp, mail server . Most of all is important that Solaris is very very capable to serve this servers because Solaris itself is one of most stable OS in world.

Heck, with Solaris zones you can easily protect whole network if you configure Solaris to work as cheap x86 firewall
