For specific information on configuring Ubuntu Server see the Ubuntu Server
Guide [1].  If there are some subjects that are not covered that should be,
I'd be glad to review any contributions.  See the Server Team Knowledge Base
page for some quick instructions for contributing to the Server Guide [2]

Including X on Ubuntu Server has been debated multiple times.  If you'd like
to install a GUI on Ubuntu Server see the ServerGui wiki page [3].  Also,
for remote web management you might take a look at eBox, and for just Apache
GUI management the rapache project has been created.
