Help getting started: Which server setup for a beginner? Apache? lighttpd? To use or not virtualenv?

I'm trying to learn Django but finding myself lost in troubleshooting hell. I can't find consistent information on the best approach for a beginner to get set up.

I started setting up Apache with mod_wsgi, but ran into innumerable config errors. After some Googling about, I found a number of suggestions to use lighttpd instead. Installed that and more troubleshooting. And what's this about gunicorn?

What's the best approach for a beginner? Where is my time best spent troubleshooting?

Also, should I be using virtualenv? Inconsistent use across the various tutorials I'm reading.

Many thanks in advance!
