Setup FTP to point to public_html

Dear all, I setup Apache2 and an ftp server.
My main www folder is /var/html
However, when I tried to use my ftp client I can only access my local home directory.
I tried creating a symbolic link ln -s /var/www/html html

but when I click on html I get an error critical file transfer error.

Can anyone help? I would like to be able to upload my scripts and html file to this directory.

thanks in advance.
