Serve website from a router
#1
Would it be possible to install Apache on a router?

What I want to do is have a router with an open network and when people connect to it it takes them to a website hosted on the router.

So the idea is to load the website on a USB and have the router serve it to guests.

Which router?

That will depend, I'm going to buy a router specifically for this so first want to know if this is possible and if it is what router will be required and then I buy that router.

Well routers do it already to serve their admin sites, but that's most likely via firmware.

Question: why not just serve the site from a server that is connected to the router/network?

I want to have it all in one, a single unit and because I want to drop the unit in a crowded place, open network and spread the word of cthulhu

That's why I thought it should be easy-ish?
