What ftp server are you using(vsftpd, proftp, wuftp)? Its a really big security risk to allow root ftp access anyway. I would suggest setting up ssh and using scp instead.

forget about the root access.

I want to give a new user I created ftp access to Documentroot
/var/www/html, right now, it's always say permission denied when upload and overwriting files.

thanks again!

Oh okay. Well you can change the group of the html directory to something other then root and then add the user to that group.
