If you have them installed as separate OS'es and coose at boot, then there is no way to do this. But everything your server can do, your desktop can do too!

In a command line do 'sudo tasksel' and you will get the option to install some server applications.

You can run a Ubuntu server inside a Virtual Machine, no problem!

That machine should have no problem running the the desktop version of Ubuntu with a LAMP server inside a Virtual Machine.

I would not run a LAMP server on my desktop, but is no problem to do it.

Running the server on the desktop would be faster than in a VM.

If you go the VM way you have the added benefit of being able to use snapshots. Messing up a server is easy the first time, and with snapshots it is easy to revert to a previous state.

Both methods have benefits and disadvantages, you have to make the choice yourself.
