Apache is by far the most common web server, and I think that MySQL is the most common database. I don't think that FreeBSD servers are all that common, most companies just go with RedHat. I know quite a few web hosting companies use BSD.

For database you have to ask the admin himself to know exactly... it could be mysql, postgresql, oracle or some lesser know or inhouse-developed DB.

Even if you know what ports these DB runs on, the safe setting for all these mainstream sites would be for localhost connection only, thus u won't actually be able to nmap it.

running nmap on random internet servers that arent yours is naughty and will piss people off and will usually end up causing trouble for yourself

Apache is the most commonly used web server while the database question depends on what you are doing. If you are running a site or network that will rely on a huge database such as a hospital or insurance company, most use oracle. If you are using a database for programming reasons or a small site, most use postgresql. Good Luck!!

I hope no one is suggesting that I do anything unethical or illegal with nmap!
