Not hard with an apache config file, just need to write a a file in
We could call it osgeolive.

In the install script copy said file to the directory and run
sudo a2ensite osgeolive
sudo service apache2 reload

It will look very similar to the default file there but have things like:

DocumentRoot /usr/local/share/osgeolive-docs
Other things to you need will be done with Alias and Directory statements.

Make a list of what you need and I can write it.
