[Solved] Can’t Update or Delete Plugins From WordPress

pbn Asks: Can’t Update or Delete Plugins From WordPress
I’m having trouble updating or deleting anything from the plugins folder of my WordPress install. I’ve tried manually deleting the plugins via FTP, but get an error message that way. I also get an error via SSH, saying I don’t have permission for those files.

The plugins folder is owned and in the group www-data. Everything else is owned by the username bitnami. I’m hosted on Amazon Lightsail.

How can I change the folder ownership of /Plugins/ to bitnami so that I can edit the contents?
