When I try to alow full access to FTP, suing the setsebool -P allow_ftpd_full_access 1 I am getting this error:

libsemanage.get_home_dirs: insta homedir /var/www/html or its parent directory conflicts with a file context already specified in the policy. This usually indicates an incorrectly defined system account. If it is a system account please make sure its uid is less than 500 or its login shell is /sbin/nologin.

I am very new to Linux and I have no idea how to proceed
