vsFTPd users question

I've read the man page for vsftpd.conf, but a question still remains. I need to setup an FTP site and decided on vsftpd (obviously). My question is this: If I disable local users from logging in with:

Then how can I setup who can login and what directory that are chrooted to.

Here is what I want to do. I have an FTP server with a PHP/HTML frontend. The server will be used by some of out clients which I want to chroot to their home directory. At the same time I have a link to /var/www in my home directory so I can FTP the HTML frontend to the Apache server. When I turned on these:

It should chroot everyone but my account, yet I'm still chroot'ed and I can no longer upload to the link to /var/www.

How can I set up vsFTPd to chroot everyone but me? The example above is supposed to work but it doesn't. Is there another way?

Rebooting didn't help for some reason, but restarting the vsftpd service worked. Let that be a lesson to you!
