Connecting Instance with FTP Client
Very often you will need to use an FTP client to upload and edit codes to the instance. Filezilla is covered here, however the process will be almost similar for any other FTP/SFTP client.
1. Open Filezilla. Under File > Site Manager setup the credentials needed to upload files.

    • Under Host, provide the Public IP Address of the instance.
    • For Protocol, select SFTP.
    • For Logon Type, select the option Key file.
    • The User is ubuntu.
    • For Key file, provide the path to the key file

When the Connect button is clicked, Filezilla attempts to connect to the instance. An “Unknown Host Key” window pops up, click Ok here.
2. You will be taken to default directory – /home/ubuntu. You can enter /var/www/html to go to the web server directory.
3. Now the the ownership and access modes of the server directory /var/www/html needs to be changed from root to ubuntu. Otherwise you will be unable to write files through FTP.

[sudo chown -R ubuntu /var/www/html sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/html]

Following these two commands you can create and upload files from FileZilla to our server directory in the instance.
