How do I connect dreamweaver to my public_html folder?

I sort of installed the LAMP server pretty quickly and then installed ProFTPD on Ubuntu 12.04.

But I cant actually ftp. I can connect to my usernam or my root but not to the public_html.

This is probably really simple but as i cant solve it its an impassable barrier.

I can fire up MySQL and can see the Apache page. It all seems to run ok but I just cant upload files to the public_html part.

I have read other questions and none of them help.

I can log in from FileZilla and then move up the directory structure to /var/www/html but I cant do it in Dreamweaver as I canr log into public_html

    <VirtualHost *:80>
    # The ServerName directive sets the request scheme, hostname and port that
    # the server uses to identify itself. This is used when creating
    # redirection URLs. In the context of virtual hosts, the ServerName
    # specifies what hostname must appear in the request’s Host: header to
    # match this virtual host. For the default virtual host (this file) this
    # value is not decisive as it is used as a last resort host regardless.
    # However, you must set it for any further virtual host explicitly.

        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        DocumentRoot /var/www/html
        # Available loglevels: trace8, ..., trace1, debug, info, notice, warn,
        # error, crit, alert, emerg.
        # It is also possible to configure the loglevel for particular
        # modules, e.g.
        #LogLevel info ssl:warn
        ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
        CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined
        # For most configuration files from conf-available/, which are
        # enabled or disabled at a global level, it is possible to
        # include a line for only one particular virtual host. For example the
        # following line enables the CGI configuration for this host only
        # after it has been globally disabled with "a2disconf".
        #Include conf-available/serve-cgi-bin.conf

On DW you can manually set the remote path to /var/www/html/ this is in site configuration remote options inside DW options

That doesnt work at all.

I do believe this was me!!!

‘manually set the remote path’ indeed.
