If this is client facing, then you're going to need someone who is experienced with it, or possibly hire a consultant. You have this posted in the CentOS 5 forum, so I'm assuming it is running RHEL and CentOS5, rather than 6. While you might be able to get it working to show web pages without experience, it will be difficult to keep it at all secure.

If there is absolutely no way to hire someone to help with this, then I would say install what you want to try on a VirtualMachine, such as VirtualBox, and experiment with that. Look for tutorials about running apache. If it's also running things like Tomcat, and using MySQL, the problem becomes more complex.

Sorry to be so discouraging, but if it were that simple, everyone would do it.
