file transfer server required

Morning all
Im not sure if this is the correct place for this so sorry if its not.
We have a redhat system that we use as a sftp server on the internet. There is a requirement to change it for a system that can do sftp, ftp, http, https etc and allow users to create accounts for the external customer to use. Globalscape have a product called eft server that does what we are after but there must be an open source product out there that can do the same type of thing, I just cant find it. Does anyone know of such a product?

Not a plug, but why do it yourselves?

We need pretty much the same and have received excellent support and service from Hetzner -

They host dedicated Debian Linux servers in Germany that will pretty much do what you describe you want. If you go for the dedicated server option, you can, to a great extent, take their "stock" dedicated server and request customisations.

Set up Apache, PHP, MySQL and ProFTPd and throw webmin on there. You'll then be able to do all that from a web gui
