apache is a red herring, here.
the problem is trying to use lm fonts for encoding t2<anything>
the lm fonts only support latin alphabets.

as you see, there's no information for using cyrillic (t2a in this case)
it's a bore. i don't actually know of a type 1 font family that does
the lot. opentype fonts tend to do both latin and cyrillic from the
same font file, but they require a different version of latex (xelatex
for stability, or lualatex).
i've heard of using latex on the web, but not xelatex.
note that this is _not_ a tex live sort of question -- witness the fact
that you've been asking so long and still don't have an answer.
i shan't recommend anywhere else to ask, since last time i did, i was
told (rather forcefully) that my suggestion was unsatisfactory. (it's a
mug's game, answering questions on mailing lists...)
