well, for the user *tester* to be able to access that directory the user 
has to either have ownership of that directory or be a member of the 
group that has access rights to that directory. My suggestion would be 
to make ownership of that directory tester.apache, and make the user 
tester a member of the group apache. Then your chmod setting of 755 will 
give the user *tester* rwx (read/write/execute) and the apache group r-w 
(read/-/execute) perms for that directory.

then when user tester logs in via FTP he'll be able to access his home
