Apache Web site updating?

I am using Frontpage 2000 to create a web site on an Apache server running on Redhat Professional 6.2. Whenever I try to publish to the site via ftp, the changes are applied to the user account I authenticate with, and not the the main httpd folder (main site). How do I map the changes to the correct location?Thanks in advance, and I will be happy to provide further information if needed.

Are you the administrator (root user), or can you talk to the root user of that machine?

Updating the main web site typically requires root privileges (by default) with apache.

Depending on the distribution, the main web files are located in different directories. RedHat 7.x has the main web site files in /var/www/html/ by default, for example.

If you know/are the administrator of the Linux system that hosts the web site in question, I suggest creating a symbolic link (in your home directory) to the main web site directory, so that you don't have to look for it every time. More importantly, ask the administrator to give you write permissions to the main web site directory.
