ProFTPd directives for new servers

Using the new server template I would like to setup proftpd so that the DefaultRoot point directly to public_html under the new virtual web server installation.

For that reason, I have set up the "ProFTPd directives for new servers" in a new template. The directives now contains (in addition to the default settings):

DocumentRoot ~/public_html

However, when I login via ftp on a newly created server I end up in the home dir and have to cd into public_html.

Q1: how should I set up the "ProFTPd directives for new servers" so that a ftp login ends up in public_html?

Q2: In which file is the directives stored? I have inspected the /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf but it contains only the default directives.
