Website maint. made easy?

Debian GNU Linux. I have apache working fine w/ DocumentRoot /var/www. vsftpd is also working fine. What I want to do is set up the ftp server so i can upload pages to my website. Should I chage the DocumentRoot directory of the web server? What permissions for DocumentRoot? Should I add a new user for just this purpose? Anything else? I'll gladly read a howto but I haven't found anything specifically dealing with this issue. TIA

Why not scp instead?
ftp, specially when via internet (not VPN) is a security
hazard ... with scp you can place the files where ever
the user copying them has write-access to, rather than
where some daemon will let you.
