Please help!

I am not a linux "pro" and inherited a system set up by our prior web guy. We have several virtual hosts set up. I can edit the HTTPD.conf file fine - change default directories etc - and get the domain to go to whatever directory I want.

PROBLEM: I can't login! No matter what combo of permissions or users or services I seem to do. I can't login to the ftp and I need help figuring out how! Each folder has a different "owner" and "group" - and i dont' know what they shoudl all be set up as (default html directory is /var/www/html) so there's at least 3 sets of folders I need set up. We only need to setup 1 user - so i dont' understand the big problem. Please advise! Thanks in advance![/b]
