It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Can't think of any where they aren't available; all can be configured for "automated install" with customized package lists. – vonbrand Apr 5 '13 at 12:24

I am not sure if such a distro exists, maybe having a look at XAMPP would be worthwile for you. -> http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html

"XAMPP is an easy to install Apache distribution containing MySQL, PHP and Perl. XAMPP is really very easy to install and to use - just download, extract and start." It is available for Windows, Linux, MacOS X and Solaris. Using this you would just have to install an FTP server and PHPMyAdmin manually afterwards.

BTW if you google for example 'Linux AND LAMP', which stands for Linux + Apache + MySQL + PHP, you will find installation instructions for almost every linux distribution. You could just take the one that seems the easiest, make a quick basic install of the distribution and follow up with a simple tutorial as well.

(For the purposes of snark, I was going to leave it at 'Yes.' Unfortunately, there's a minimum limit of 30 characters. Ah well...)

edit: It's worth noting that I haven't actually tried any of the turnkey linux appliances; I've just read good things. Consider yourself a guinea pig.
