For some reason my first attempt to create a rule on our new Cisco ASA 5505 router failed. It should be a simple rule: to allow http requests to go to a specific IP inside the LAN.

There's the part of the config file:
access-list inside_access_in extended permit tcp any host 192.168.2.5 eq www
access-list inside_access_in extended permit tcp any host 192.168.2.5 eq ftp

I think you created the rules in the wrong zone.  Create the rule specifying the outside interface to the inside like below.

access-list outside extended permit tcp any host 192.168.2.5 eq www
access-list outside extended permit tcp any host 192.168.2.5 eq ftp

I figured it out. Had to create a NAT object that was the internal machine's IP, and then create an outbound rule that forwards the http requests to this object.
Thank you!
