This is how you did it on Blue Quartz - I'll take a little look over the 
weekend to see if it's do-able on BO unless someone else chips in -
 or MS offers to add it to core.  Anyway, this is the BQ way:

This solution provides a workaround, obviously use at your own risk 

vi /usr/sausalito/handlers/base/ftp/config_ftp_site.pl

<VirtualHost $ftp_site->{ipaddr}>
    DefaultRoot     / wheel
        DefaultRoot             / 
        DefaultRoot             ~/../../.. 
        DefaultRoot             ~ !$Base::Vsite::SITE_ADMIN_GROUP
        AllowOverwrite  on
        DefaultChdir            /web  # new added

Also add it once to  /etc/proftpd.conf

Save and:

service xinetd restart
