Your linux distribution would have come with some ftp server
such as vsftpd.
If you r using Redhat Linux then vsftpd is configured as service in xinetd
look for /etc/xinetd/vsftpd
There will be a line disable = yes make it no
then edit the vsftpd.conf file and configure it as per your will
As far as connecting goes, all you need to do is
ftp machine name /ip or
open IE and enter ftp://iporname

I have configured vsftpd and got the FTP page in the web browser. But I can't create any directory or upload any file on that ftp. I don't know that what will be the exact configuration process.

You must be using the anonymous logon
Try logging in as a user.
If you want to enable anonymous users to create directories and upload files
then
open vsftpd.conf
look for the lines
#anon_upload_enable=YES and
#anon_mkdir_write_enable=YES
and uncomment them
That will enable anonymous FTP user tp upload files and create directories
