you are instructed to install PureFTP and create an ssh certificate for that
You are instructed to create a SSL certificate, not a SSH certificate. SSH is not SSL.

Are you not supposed to be able to create an ftp user from the ISPConfig admin page for the websites you have setup? Should that ftp user not be granted access to the website you have created?
Sure. A FTP User. But you used SSH to access the website and not FTP, this is absolutely clear as the error in your log is from the SSH daemon. For a SSH protocol, you have to create a SSH user and for a FTP protocol, you need a FTP user.

There is a protocol named SFTP (which is a SSH protocol) and another protocol named FTPS (which is a FTP protocol). So for SFTP, you need a SSH user and for FTPS you need a FTP user.
