Hello there,

I would recommend that you check out this tutorial on How To Set Up vsftpd for a User’s Directory:

I recently had to do the same thing and this tutorial really helped me out a lot!

FTP, short for File Transfer Protocol, is a network protocol that was once widely used for moving files between a client and server. It has since been replaced by faster, more secure, and more convenient ways of delivering files. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to configure vsftpd to allow a user to upload files to his or her home directory using FTP with login credentials secured by SSL/TLS.
