vsftpd access to non-home directory

vsftpd installed an running
apache installed an running
secure in home network
Problem: I want to be able to move from /var/ftp/pub to /var/www/html to move files to a test apache server that I have on the machine with vsftpd. Can someone tell me how I can get to /var/www/html. I have no need to get to /home/[username] as the user was added only to try to get to apache.

So am I looking at user-rights, vsftpd setup strings to allow other access, or is there a way to set up httpd.conf to allow ftp into the 'html' directory?

Where to "RTFM" is also desirable. There is a lot of info on Apache and I can't read it all to begin the learning process.

two choices

1- remove the chroot option in the conf file of vsftp
2- create a user with home as /var/www/html and give permissions consequently
