What's the best way to set up an Apache/MySQL/Perl CGI environment starting from an Ubuntu 9.04 desktop installation? I'd like to be able to do this either from within a VM or on a "real" installation, if that makes any difference.

Which packages should I install, and are there any particular configuration guides that might be useful to me?
