Hi. I know it must be out there, but I'm struggling to find it.

How should I setup my NGINX server so that I can FTP to the server, add files, edit files, etc and not break the ability of NGINX to serve correctly?

I added my user to the www-data group, but I can't FTP files owned by www-data:www-data, and when I add new files via FTP, they are always created with myuser:myuser ownership.

Can someone point me to the info, because I'm sure it has been covered already?
