NO.  The short answer is that you CANNOT install a webserver or database server on iOS.

There are no real development tools on iOS so you cannot develop the app on the iPad.

You can develop on OSX on a full desktop or laptop computer using XCode or a range of other applications and use the iPAD to test the built & deployed app but apart from text editors there are no coding tools designed for iOS itself.

It is possible to develop iOS apps on Windows platform but the options are quite limited .. see the main options here

The only one I've use is Titanium which is good for web-based apps but does not have the full functionality or features available to native iOS code developed on a Mac running XCode.

All major iOS developers will probably have a Mac Mini or other apple computer for development.

Xcode by Apple is the main iOS development tool on mac computers. There are other 3rd party development applications (Google iOS app development for OSX) but Xcode is the main one.
