Most likely your current Ubuntu system uses DHCP server to configure its networking settings. Hence, the configuration of your IP address is dynamic. In many scenarios, simply configuring your router or local DHCP server is a preferred way to set a static address to any host regardless of the operating system in use.

If you want to run PHP-based websites on Linux, Apache isn't your only option. Nginx is a faster, lighter weight, web server that's fairly easy to configure and get running. Plus, it's excellent at handling other tasks like load balancing, server optimization, and acting as a reverse proxy.
