How to I setup FTP to allow people to upload a website?

LEMP Nginx WordPress

So I followed this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-vsftpd-for-a-user-s-directory-on-ubuntu-16-04

But it limits the user to write only in their directory. Is there a tutorial for allowing users to write in the var/www folder?

Hello friend!

That can get a bit more complicated, but I found a discussion on it here which contains a few ideas about how you might accomplish it.
