Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
Basicly, point your finger in the general direction you want me to go and ill get there. I realize the answers are probably right in front of me.....you all know how that is, right?
This is not instant messaging, so answers will not necessarily be instant. And you may simply be asking questions that those of us who've read your posts don't know the answer to. For example, I *think* that FTP is part of the programs bundled with your operating system, and not part of Apache at all - Apache is an HTTP server, and you'll need to have an FTP server as well - they are different servers for two different protocols as far as I know.
Hang in there, and also try searching the WebmasterWorld library (link at top of this page), this whole site, and the web too, if you can't wait for an expert to stop by. This will also help tighten the focus of the questions you do have.
I'd rather give you no answer than a wrong answer. Others probably feel the same.
Also, Im sorry for adding these links, am I out of line? Please let me know

I remember hearing that Apache has some form of FTP server bundled, but I couldn't sweaqr on it.
Do a search for FTP server on google and you should find plenty, including free ones. I personally am using GuildFTPd, not out of preference, but because my host set it up, and it works well enough and I had never reason to replace it.
I suposed the biggest difference between FTP servers is in how much user management they let you do, like setting limited on speed and quantities.
Hope that'll get you started.
The really simple way is ftp://DomainName.com. If you allow anonymous FTP to all directories they can have a ball. Otherwise they should be asked to login with a valid user name and password (as set in your hosting control panel) and then they can upload files according to the permissions you have allowed.
The same thing can be done from a piece of FTP software (I like CuteFTP, but each to their own).
Hope this helps :)
