There are a couple different layers to address this one. If you are only wanting to share access to your CMS (think WordPress), you will want to refer to the documentation for that specific application. I’ve linked that of WordPress here.

If you want to share access to the Droplet, you will want to consider the level of access you want to provide. In any case, it is recommended that you do not share access to the root user. With that in mind, we have some great documentation available on Adding and Removing Users.

For a little more context, we also have a guide on setting up SFTP users. If you are wanting to provide full SSH access to the other users, this Q&A post may come in handy.

I’m using an Apache server so the setup is slightly different than yours, though still easy to sort through. It turns out this was a simple problem within the app where an address was incorrect, and not a server problem at all! The use of <VirtualHost> does not affect what addresses Apache httpd listens on. You may need to ensure that Apache httpd is listening on the correct addresses using Listen.
