Question duplicating Unix server on LAN (Perl / html)

I'm trying to set up a linux LAN server to duplicate the function of an online server running some html / perl scripts that I've written (interactive registration forms, reports, etc). The online site uses Apache, Perl, and an ftp server (for edits and changes). I'm under the impression that I must setup the same programs Apache, Perl, and an ftp server (vsftp?) in order to do this locally but I am not sure that is true. I'm looking for confirmation or for alternative ideas that might be available for a local server (e.g. it does not need to be accessible over the internet).

This is a data management system for amateur racing so accuracy & dependability are more important than cost, if anyone has some specific guidance or is willing to help on this project (Marietta GA).

Yes and no

Apache is pretty much the only web server you would want to use. Just use the latest version. Is there anything special about your html? This will be the largest/most configuration install.

Perl, well your username is perluser, so you aren't going to change that right? I assume the perl program uses CGI to talk to the web server right? Or mod_perl? Perl is already installed more than likely.

FTP, I would search around and find a server program that you can manage. Try searching the forums here, google,, or what your distrobution provides for one. Try several till you find one you are comfortable with. Or maybe someone will recommend an easy one to use. There is even less to worry about if it is not accessable from the 'net.

There isn't anything special here, and if your web hoster has been keeping up to date, you probably won't have any version incompatibilites.

Is there anything specific/strange that might cause you problems?

Good Luck,
