Default Need help with apache2.2 proftpd and dreamweaver

I am a noob and tring to set up my first site i can connect to the server with an ftp connection though dreamweaver but when i go to save the changes I get

Index.html - error occurred - An FTP error occurred - cannot put index.html. Access denied. The file may not exist, or there could be a permission problem. Make sure you have proper authorization on the server and the server is properly configured.

any Ideas where I went wrong


Thanks

The permissions on the web server are not allowing you to write.

Change ownership of the document root to webuser.yourgroup
Code:
chown webuser.yourgroup -R /path_to_document_root
Then set the permissions
Code:
chmod g+w -R /path_to_document_root
