You could just re-run the "figure out which keyboard" script. It will be
probably something like

sudo dpkg-reconfigure ...

I don't know the exact name. Hopefully someone else on the list will answer.

Actually you don't really *need* the server edition for the LAMP stack.
You can do the following on any edition to get a full LAMP stack:

sudo aptitude install apache2 mysql-server php5

This one is a good test to make sure that everything works:

sudo aptitude install phpmyadmin

then browse to

CAUTION! Don't install phpmyadmin on a publicly accessible machine unless
you have properly secured it.
