This is to help people setup and install a LAMP (Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP) server in Ubuntu, including Apache 2, PHP 5 and MySQL 4.1 or 5.0 : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP

I hope it be useful. If it don't work you can use this way ( add repository:ppa ) :

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ptn107/apache

then install apache :

sudo apt-get install apache2-mpm-worker

And to check it you can use:

apache2 -v
