For a web server I would use apache:
http://httpd.apache.org/

and for ftp I would use vsftpd:
http://vsftpd.beasts.org/

There is lots of documentation on their sites as well as this one. I use both so if you run into difficulty and can't find an answer else where just post again.

nothing, that is the startupscript.
if you want to start the server: service http start
" " " " stop " " : service http stop
