How to configure Webmin with Apache and ProFTPD for multiple domain hosting

I have a Ubuntu 9.10 with Apache 2.2.12, ProFTPD 1.32 managed by Webmin.
I have no experience with any of this sadly and want to be able to do the following two tasks:
1) Setup 3 separate domains to be hosted on Apache (domains registered and DNS points to single public IP of this server)
2) Setup 3 users who will be able to FTP to each domain in order to upload their sites

I'm not sure what the standard directory paths are but would like each of the three users to not be able to see anything other than their own domain's directory in FTP.

Can anyone provide step by step instructions to set this up in Webmin?

Thanks,
Andrew.

I've managed to do 1), I was adding a wrong address in webmin, finally solved it by editing the httpd file ironically, now on with trying to solve the ftp issue to upload to each directory.

I know this probably isn't the answer that you're looking for, but a much more user-friendly and easier to learn solution may be ISPConfig over webmin. I've been using for a few years now and I think that it's far superior to webmin. Plus there's tons of write-up's and how-to's.

The how-to starting from the install:

and the actual website:

Having spent all the Easter weekend working on this and finally having sorted it out on my own by editing tthe conf files rather than using webmin after all I am thoroughly disgusted that you should point me at something which would have probably saved ne a few days of heart ache!!!

I will download this, which according to your links appears to do everything I need and more, and will start again with a couple of dns servers using bind which whilst are working are just not easy to use.!

Thanks again, I think I'll be using this lots!!! I am guessing that had I got this before fixing my problem it would have worked just as well so I will award the points anyway. Cheers!
