Angry FTP Permission Denied

I have a server running RedHat 7.1, and whenever a user attempts to ftp a file onto the website they get Permission Denied. The same user can ftp files into their home directory, as well as other directories on the server. The files are chmod to 575 and the user is the owner of these files. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

Thanks Jamie! I had to change permissions to 775. I don't know why, but it works now. Thanks.
