Unhappy web hosting

hello . my problem ? web hosting.
i have to run an apache server and a ftp sever and i need some advice.

1) how to install apache and ftp servers? what to install ?
2) run them on the same machine ?
3) configure a firewall ?

obs :

- the ftp server will be used by users to upload their web pages
- we offer free web hosting space and the procedure is this : the user should complete a php formular (and i don't know how to do this ) ; after this ,he will have a usename and a password to log on the ftp server ;

i really need some good help.thanks.

Not being rude, but are you the right person to do this?
There are a huge number of mis-configuration opportunities to create a mess, and you can't trust default configurations either..

If you are sure you are up to the task tho', I recommend you have a play with SME server and see how they do their configurations, then basically do the same..
You won't need all the servers running but you'll get the idea.


The scripting for a php logon/sign-on page you will find faster if you search google
