Set up LAMP server with FTP users

If I create a droplet with Wordpress, how can I add multiple sftp users that can upload to the website? If I follow any of the tutorials about VSFTP, SFTP or Apache, I end up with users who can upload files to the website, but those files are not readable by the apache user.
