This is more of a Unix question, but you need to create a user for your
FTP software that is webmaster, webguy, webwhatever and then allow
that user to put files into the directory that you set up for Apache to
look to for HTML files.

Apache does not care much about this, it just looks into the space that
you allow it to.

I would not use telnet, that is really not very secure.  If this in an "Internal" network,
maybe.  Otherwise I would a SSH, or something that Sftp that is secure.
