What is rApache

RApache enables the developement of web applications in the R statistical language.The rApache software distribution provides the Apache module named mod_R that embeds the R interpreter inside the web server. It also comes bundled with libapreq, an Apache module for manipulating client request data. Together, they provide the glue to transform R into a server-side scripting environment.
