vsftp help

Ok i have got vsftp running, took anon log in away and made it so local users can log. Now that i have logged in im stuck with my dir of /home/me/

Now i want to change that to my html folder but in the conf file i don't see a place for this to be changed. Second the www folder is owned by the root, so if i want to up-load to that dir does my log in have to be root our can i set permission for user me to be able to write and read the folder?

SO.... You have Several trusted users who you want to be able to write to the html folder ?

the simple way to do this would be to make a new user group called somthing like "html"
then make all trusted users member of the user group "HTML"
then change the ownership of the html folder to "root:html"
and permissions to 775 (if not done already)

that way, the trusted non root users can write ot the html folder.

understand ?
