There are a dozen ways to do this. One is to uplodate with WebDAV over
HTTPS, which is built into Apache on CentOS and has plenty of usable
clients such as lftp. Another is simply to designate a directory under
/var/www/html/, owned by you personally, that the apache user can
browse. That give you direct upload access as yourself.
