In this page, apache refers to the apache version 1.3 package and apache2 refers to apache version 2.0.

Apache2 is the recommended version, presently.

PHP4

emma@ubuntu:~$ apt-cache show php4
Package: php4
...
Depends: libapache2-mod-php4 (>= 4:4.4.2-1build1) | libapache-mod-php4 (>= 4:4.4.2-1build1) | php4-cgi (>= 4:4.4.2-1build1), php4-common (>= 4:4.4.2-1build1)
...

Php4 depends on either libapache2-mod-php4 or libapche-mod-php4.

PHP5

emma@ubuntu:~$ apt-cache show php5
Package: php5
...
Depends: libapache2-mod-php5 (>= 5.1.2-1ubuntu3) | php5-cgi (>= 5.1.2-1ubuntu3), php5-common (>= 5.1.2-1ubuntu3)
...

Php5 will only depend on libapache2-mod-php5. There is no libapache-mod-php5.
