What you're describing sounds like an extranet. Apache with SSL sounds like
a good idea here, especially if this is sensitive data.

It would be pretty easy to build some kind of file browsing system with PHP
or Perl. You could also use either of these for whatever authentication
scheme you cook up.

Good idea. =)

My suggestion for an IDE RAID controller would be something from 3ware. If
this will be a moderate to very busy site, I would also suggest a minimum of
512MB of RAM. My last thought would be that you keep future expansion in
mind and go with slightly larger disks, maybe 80 or 100GB.
