Is the box in question behind a good firewall? If so then install the latest and
greatest versions follow the docs and you'll be fine. If the apache services
need to be accessible from the open internet then publish them through your
firewall. Same goes for ftp. You should be operational in no time.

 How do you spell cooperation? Pessimists use each other,
 but optimists help each other. Collaboration feeds your
 spirit, while competition only stokes your ego.
