What's the problem?

 $ ln -s $documentroot ~

But that's not the real answer.  If you're using ftp, you're also
transferring your password in the clear.  After that, you don't need
ssh to access the machine; you've already compromised yourself.  I use
rsync for this purpose.  Here's the beginning of the script:

  #!/bin/sh
  # 
  # Synchronize the web sites.
  # 
  RSYNC_RSH=ssh
  export RSYNC_RSH
  echo +++ Transferring grog
  rsync -Lzav --exclude=RCS  --exclude=private --exclude="*~" ~grog/public_html/* 
website:htdocs/www.lemis.com/grog
  echo +++ Transferring www.lemis.com
  cd /usr/local/www/data
  rsync -zLtuv --exclude=RCS --exclude="*~" --exclude=auug --exclude=bookmarks.html * 
website:htdocs/www.lemis.com
