If FTP is enough to set up the website then your hosting company will have documentation on what needs to be done. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams May 6 '11 at 5:46

You cannot setup apache via FTP. If you have been provided only with FTP access them probably your hosting company has already setup Apache and the FTP access is provided only to upload data to the server. Check with your provider.
