outdated tutorials for any distro will probably work, the more things change... the more they stay the same. I doubt that if you look for tutorials for the correct version of the software, that you will find somehting that doesn't work.
as far as mysql: they have extensive documentation on their product at thier site.
php.net is also a good refrence, I would expect no less of perl. as far as apache, the defualt config ought to work for you pretty well. If all else fails, I'd look into getting o'reilly published apache books through inter-library loan at your local library
