I'm wondering why you *need* an FTP server... Normally, you have no need
of FTP in a web server since the clients can request and download
everything via HTTP. Perhaps you want to allow users to *upload* files
to the server? If you want to allow them to use FTP then, yes, you need
to run a separate FTP server or find an apache module (see
http://www.covalent.net/support/docs/ers/2.2.0/HTML/ProductGuide/ftpmodu
le.html).

Alternatively, you can use webDAV (see
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_dav.html) which implements the
various remote-authoring HTTP methods such as PUT, MOVE, DELETE etc.

There's also a mod_frontpage which allows MS FrontPage clients to edit
data on the site (http://www.rtr.com/fpsupport/index.asp)

The main point about apache is that *everything* is controlled from the
ascii config file. And don't forget to restart the server after any
edits to make sure the server picks up the changes!

Rgds,
Owen Boyle
