How can I view or FTP into my WordPress site hosted on AWS?

Question

If this is the wrong site for this, I apologize. I am not a WordPress developer, but I have a small bit of WP experience.

Does anyone know how I could view the file tree of a WordPress site hosted on AWS? I am trying to migrate a WordPress page for a non-profit from AWS to another hosting service. Unfortunately, AWS console is clogged with dozens (hundreds?) of non-descriptive product names, and something like viewing your hosted files is not given any intuitive guideposts. I feel like I’m getting warmer with the EC2 console, but I don’t see even a FTP server address.

I would like to FTP into the hosted page, or at the very least, view the hosted files.
Can anyone point me to where these tool are hiding in AWS console?

Many thanks.

    EC2 instances do not come with built-in FTP access, you need to create it. Here is a very good guide form a developer I know: https://silicondales.com/tutorials/aws-ec2/setup-ftp-sftp/
