Adding FTP users in vsFTP


I'm fairly new to linux, so bare with me. Basically I would like to create a new user with ftp access to this directory: /var/www/html

Sounds fairly simple but I've been unable to get it to work.

Much thanks in advance,
brandon

There is a section in vsftpd.conf that specifically deals with upload permissions. If you have uploads disabled then nobody will have write access.
