Choosing a Linux Distro WebTesting/FileSharing

The second requirement may trump the first, unless the web sites impose 
no special requirements on the server. If you want an accurate test 
environment, you should try and replicate your production hosting 
environment as much as possible, including the distribution.

If you were only using the box for a file server, then I'd suggest 
considering one of the NAS distributions (FreeNAS, Open Filer), but for 
general use I'd second Jarod's recommendation and stick with what you know.
