575 - owner - Read/Execute, Group - Read/Write/Execute, other - Read/Execute - hence your user cannot overwite the files with new ones!! Chmod them to 644 and all should be well, or 755 if they are actually executables. The UNIX groups are mutually exclusive, so even if the owner of the file is in the group that has permission to write to the file they still need to have permission to write to the file as the 'owner' - if you see what I mean.
