Within the directives options of your httpd.conf, there should be a directory setup specifying where your files are located. Simply change this from /var/www/html to /srv/www . As for uploading to the new directory, within your FTP program, you simply connect straight to /srv/www (most FTP clients let you specifiy a remote path), or change into that directory once connected and then upload your files as normal.
