yes, Alex is right. use SFTP to avoid any risk to your web server. <br> <br>create a user: adduser username <br>and it is better to create a group so that group can be given certain permissions and access to folders. <br> <br>Then choose what folders and permissions you want to give to each user… <br> <br>use some software like filezilla to test that. <br> <br>And remember to use SSH key access instead of login access

Ubuntu dosen’t support FTP by default, it supports SFTP. You’ll need to give them a user account. Then via an SFTP client they will be able to access files on the server with the details of that said user account.

give them an account <br> <br>> sudo adduser <name>
