Install/Config of Apache based server

Budget $30 - $250 USD
Bids 23
Average Bid $175

I need someone who has demonstrable skills in the setup and configuration of the following:
Apache 2
TinyCore Linux

and possibly SAMBA and FTP

I need to set up a box to use as a server so my clients can up/download files. I will install the required software on the server, but I need someone with in depth knowledge of Apache et al to set up and configure access and security. I also need your input on what packages need to be installed on the server to ensure the most reliable and secure access to the server. The server will be hosted at my office with access via a fixed IP address. I have registered a domain name to use just for the server and will arrange to direct the domain to the server once the project is complete. In the interim I would prefer the winning bidder to work on an offline version so that I can test this locally - please advise your preferred way of remotely accessing the server until it goes live.

To reiterate, security is paramount - I accept that I will have to expose the server to the world, but I need to minimise the possibility of the server being exploited. Please ask if you require further details.
