Question ProFTPD - home and common dir

After reading up on the From beginning to end: ProFTPD Im a big Q.
Can I or can I not have both DefaultRoot ~ and DefaultRoot /var/ftp at the same time?
Or how do I go about achieving that?

DefaultRoot /var/ftp
**Remember, this directory must exist, otherwise there will be no one able to get into your system.

pretty self-explaining

DefaultRoot ~ will make the users automaticaly log into their home dirs. Remember, proftp use local user made with f.ex. adduser...

It looks to me that you can and should have both...
