The file that holds the config is "/etc/ssh/sshd_config"

I would back that up first and add the user, then restart.

The user must set their password first by means of "passwd".
Login with a password set by root leads to a prompt requesting this action, which ssh doesn't tolerate.

-p, --password PASSWORD
    The encrypted password, as returned by crypt(3). The default is to disable the password.

    Note: This option is not recommended because the password (or encrypted password) will be visible by users listing the processes.
