FTP for Web Server

I set up an Apache web server on my Raspberry Pi. This was the first time I ever used this device. It works perfectly (I can view the Apache starting web page)! Now, since I'm new to Linux, is there an easy way to set this up for FTP transfer so I can load my web site on this device? Or is there a better way to transfer a folder full of files?

I SFTP into my RPi through SSH :-)

Don't I need to set it up as an FTP server first?

If you want to do sftp (and you probably should) then you don't need to do anything extra if you have ssh enabled.

If you do want a full ftp server there are plenty you can choose to install.
