VSFTPD - Access/Root dir problem


I have Red Hat 8.0 and I trying to get my VSFTPD to have user passwords and have the ftp root point to my apache server document root. I've looked around for help but can't find any. Can someone help?

PS. I'm very new at this.

Look in the directory '/etc/vsftpd' and look at the file 'vsftpd.conf'. You can set the root directories for anonymous and also for local user default directories. Ther is also a man page for vsftpd.conf. I have found little else in the way of documentation, but the man page was very helpful in getting it to work properly. By the way, I have been told and the docs say to put the vsftpd.conf file in '/etc' but could not get it to work properly unless in '/etc/vsftpd'.
Hope this helps.
