I suppose that would be ideal, and provide the best performance and
security. However, nothing at all prevents you from running everything on
one computer. Proper use of SELinux can add a lot of security. Or you could
run three virtual machines on one physical server.

The security danger is in the fact that web application software is often
riddled with bugs. Bugs can also appear in web server or database server
software, but much less often, or so it seems.
