You don't need to have a desktop/GUI to install any software and in fact having one installed on an enterprise server wouldn't be recommended.

Is your Linux server part of a hosted solution or are you setting-up a new server from scratch? Almost all hosting providers install Apache, MySQL and PHP as standard (irrespective of how much you pay for the solution) and these will normally be activated by default - it's only with a dedicated/managed solution that the hosting provider won't necessarily have installed these services.

If you have to install these services yourself then do as Doug says, google "LAMP installation guide" or something similar but be warned that just because you've installed PHP and MySQL doesn't mean they'll work out of the box or be configured correctly! You'll also want phpMyAdmin (to administrate MySQL) but this also needs to be configured correctly or people will start trying to hack it (judging from my logs, phpMyAdmin seems to be the starting point for most attacks).

If you have a basic or business solution with a hosting provider (if you're using one) find out what help they can give you - most have quick-start guides in their knowledgebase but will normally be happy to answer a few questions as well.
