I'm a web developer, and have finally built myself a FC7 web server. I have it all set up but I'm not sure the best approach to take for hosting multiple sites in terms of the filesystem, and FTP accounts etc.

I thought one way would be to create VirtualHosts for each site, and create a user to represent each site such that the website will go in /home/user_site_name. To correspond with that I would like to setup an FTP server so that I can log in with a username, and the ftp would use the aforementioned directory (sandboxed) for that user. How would I go about doing this? I've read basic tutorials for vsftpd and proftpd but they only really cover an anonymous FTP setup for filesharing etc...

The documentation is a bit heavy, and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction or instruct me on the best way to achieve this.

Many Thanks.

Cheers to all those who had a look. I've managed to figure it out!
