This is the procedure I use to get mythweb up and running on Ubuntu 9.10 
,Mythtv .22 .....

cd ~/mythplugins/mythweb

sudo cp -rp . /usr/share/mythtv/mythweb

sudo ln -s /usr/share/mythtv/mythweb /var/www

sudo chgrp www-data /usr/share/mythtv/mythweb/data

sudo chmod 775 /usr/share/mythtv/mythweb/data

sudo chmod +t /usr/share/mythtv/mythweb/data

ls -ld  /usr/share/mythtv/mythweb/data

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Contents of /etc/apache2/conf.d/mythweb conf.apache

<Directory "/var/www/mythweb">
   Options FollowSymLinks
   AllowOverride All
   Order allow,deny
   Allow from all

   SetEnv db_server "localhost"
   SetEnv db_name "mythconverg"
   SetEnv db_login "root"
   SetEnv db_password "your password"

   RewriteEngine on

   RewriteRule ^(pl(/.*)?)$ mythweb.pl/$1 [QSA,L]
