    Since VSftpd server's users are based on real users on the linux system and chroot's them to their home directory...how could you add multiple users to one directory? Say the directory /var/www/html/carl has the ftp home of user carl. What happens what i also want to give "brad" access to that same directory via Ftp? How is this possible? Thanks

    Give both users the same home dir. Then create a group, add both users to the group and give the group r/w access to the dir.
