What's the recommended way to install Wordpress from packages on a server?

http://askubuntu.com – I've got a LAMP server available from http://91.xxx.xx.xx/ (just an example IP address), and I'd like to install Wordpress there. I've gone as far as doing a simple sudo apt-get install wordpress to install Wordpress, but I'm not too sure about the set of best-practice steps after that. I've read the documentation to install Wordpress in the Ubuntu wiki, but it is out-of-date. Also I couldn't figure it out from the /usr/share/doc/wordpress/README.Debian provided in the wordpress package. Here are some additional notes of what I'm trying to do with the site: The server is running Ubuntu 10 (HowTos)
