Yeah, the clue is in the name :)

That is a totally different question - but you should be 
able to restrict the URLs apache accepts using the usual

<Location /blabla>

stuff. Combining that with a proxied Location pointing to
the ftp server should let you restrict what URLs apache 
will forward onto the ftp server.

Personally I'd secure the ftp server itself.
