It kinda depends on how you've got your machine set up and what ftp server you are using.

But basically you should just add another user make sure he has read and write permissions in that directory. And you could set his home directory to the one /home/httpd dir. You should make sure that the files the user creates will be readable by the nobody nogroup which is usually used by the web server.
