There is wwwconfig-common, which was designed for the webserver side
of your question.
Here is my standard rant about web-based software & Debian, please consider it:
There is no way to know which filesystem path, database names, domain
name and HTTP path the sysadmin wants a web-based app to be run at.
Ideally, in the upstream code there would be a script/command that can
be used to setup an instance of the software at a particular URL, with
data stored in particular locations.
Ideally, in the relevant Debian package there should be debconf
prompts that act as input about whether to run and how to run the
upstream instance setup script.
