There are many ways to do this but I’ll share the best and the  a easiest way to configure Apache MySQL and PHP (LAMP) on your Ubuntu. this is for Ubuntu 11.04

1. Go to applications->accessories->terminal

2. Enter Following commands accordingly,

sudo apt-get install tasksel

sudo tasksel install lamp-server

3. Give the MySQL root password, that’s all

4.  We want the default site to be /home/YourUserName/sites/. To do this, we must create a new site and then enable it in Apache2.

To create a new site:

Create a new folder called sites in /home/YourUserName

Copy the default website as a starting point.

sudo cp /etc/apache2/sites-available/default /etc/apache2/sites-available/mysite

5. gksudo gedit /etc/apache2/sites-available/mysite

6. Change the DocumentRoot and Directory to point to the new location. For example replace /var/www/ it with /home/YourUserName/sites/.

DocumentRoot /home/YourUserName/sites

<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
<Directory /home/YourUserName/sites/>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
allow from all

7. Change the Directory directive, replace to

sudo a2dissite default && sudo a2ensite mysite

8. Finally, we restart Apache2:

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

9. Click here http://localhost/
