Unhappy drake 10 ftp/http won't run


yeah I've got my mandrake server all setup using drakwizard but I've run into a few problems first off with the http server:

i got the server working fine but what about adding member? would i'd have to create there acount on the computer?

for the ftp:
it didn't specify a location the servers root is at nor did it set up members, how am i suppost to set this stuff up?

before on my old server people would have a ftp account to upload files (the ftp would upload the files into the same location that was being hosted by the http server. for example joe would use his ftp account and upload to
C:\server\joe
then to goto his website it would be
www.domain.com/joe
cuzz the root of both the http server and ftp server were the same

now how do i do this with mandrake?

thanks for the help!

You have to create the users on the server and with the ftp server you can set it up to have the root directory be /home/joe/

you can make it wherever you want it to be. Are you using proFTP?
