While they have similar names, SFTP and FTP are actually very different things, and they have completely separate configurations. To restrict a SFTP user, you need to edit the file /etc/ssh/sshd_config and add a section including:

Match User user1
ChrootDirectory /home/user1
ForceCommand internal-sftp
Digital ocean does not use ftp connections, as they are very inseguraas, what you can do is connect from ftp client on port 22.

Host: 107170192195
user: root
port: 22

You'll get a warning message about the connection, give everything and if ready.

what is the code to set user1’s password to “ 12345”

  • I wouldn’t do that – your server will be hacked in no time if you use a weak password such as 12345. You can change user1’s password by running:

    sudo passwd user1

    as root or a user with sudo access.
