Go to System->administrator->synaptic and then search for the package you want.

There are many how to's on the net for that. I assume you want to install a LAMP server. Just google for "How to install LAMP Server Ubuntu". Sorry can't be more specific as I am posting from a mobile phone!
Oh and LAMP stands for Linux Apache Mysql Php!

In synaptics menus, there should be an option to 'select packages by task' or something like that. If you choose this option, there will be a list of tasks, one of them should be a LAMP server.

open up a terminal and type -> sudo tasksel install lamp-server
