Apache and FTP vps to work more like godaddy shared hosting
I have a drupal site on an unmanaged vps running centos 5.3 apache 2.2 mysql 5 and php 5.2 w/ safe mode on.

Apache is running apache:apache
proftpd is running ftp:ftp
ftp user is (changed) myftpuser:myftpuser with home of /var/www/html

When I was using Godaddy shared hosting I just uploaded all my site files with ftp and everything worked fine. Files were all 644 and folders were 755 by default.

Now that I have my own vps with solar vps I can't get my site to run right unless most files and folders are owned by apache, which prevents the ftp user from touching them.

How do I set up apache and ftp to work flawlessly like when I was using godaddy shared hosting. I just want it to work without having to change owner and permissions all the time and use (changed) myftpuser to upload and download all files.

try making sure that apache user is also a member of the ftp users' group then apache would have read/write/execute access according to whatever default permissions are for the ftp users group membership

I don't remember the command line to add a user to another group but a quick google should reveal that
