You and I worked together before on vWorker. You setup a Linux RAID system for me and joined it to a domain. I would love to hire you again.
I have a simple project: setup a LAMP server on a VPS, but use the COMPILED versions of PHP for PHP instead of the sources from APT. The OS will be Ubuntu [url removed, login to view] LTS. I have a procedure you can follow in our wiki that is our standard setup. (It was created for Ubuntu [url removed, login to view] - 04 LTS, so some minor changes may need to be done. If that's the case, please update the document for us while you're "on the clock.")
It will need vsftpd setup as well as an SSL cert, and a couple users. If I were setting it up, the whole thing would probably take around 4 hours. So, I am assuming you can do it in about the amount of time.
I'll be getting the VPS provisioned today, and also get the SSL certificates, etc... done today as well.
