I am a novice in SSH and linux.

I got a server and I would like to setup openSSH on it. The SSH should listen to port 443 and I would also like it to authenticate using userame and password. However, I would like to add more than one user name to it. Please what setups should I take and how should I go about it.

OpenSSH should already be installed on all droplets. You can add a new linux user by running:

sudo adduser newusername
