Apache, php and mysql are available as Owl addons (i.e. not audited but 
packaged and kept somewhat up-to-date and compatible with Owl-current, 
or whatever version OP5 happens to be shipping). Perl is shipped as a 
part of the core Owl distribution.

You'll need mysql, apache, apache-php, apache-ssl (if you intend to use 
ssl), php, php-mysql and a couple of other things as well, such as mm 
and friends. I think you should be able to find everything you need 
there though. If not, gimme a holler and I'll see what I can do.
