Hey, I would recommend that you change your apache web dictionary to your FTP home folder as it will be more secure. To do this you need to edit your Apache configuration to reflect the changes and once that is done you should updated the permissions of the folder by running these commands.
chown -R user-apache-runs-as:group-apache-runs-in /home/yourftpuser
chmod -R 755 /home/yourftpuser/*
Alternatively I would recommend using SFTP.
