How to Create a SFTP User in Lightsail Wordpress for Web Designer Access


I want to create an SFTP account for my web designer to make modifications in my Wordpress directory.

Directory: /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/htdocs

How can I do that?

I have followed the instructions here, but the new SFTP user is not able to access my Wordpress folder via SFTP. I can access the WP folder using my bitnami user account and PEM file just fine.

But I do not have want to give such high level access to my web design agency.

Thanks in advance!
