The easiest way to be PCI compliant is to be out of scope. There are enough 
solutions for handling online payments where you don't have to touch the 
credit card data yourself. I'd assume that most even support recurring payments
using a token instead of the credit card number. Since the original request 
apparently comes from someone who doesn't know much about running or securing a 
webserver, I'd recommend finding a service that runs the whole thing as a service, 
including payment processing.
