SSH Error


I am trying to login to my linux server. I was initially doing "ssh hostname". The login did not work, so I tried "ssh username@IP", which still prompted me with the yes/no prompt, but I received this error:

Code:
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
@    WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!     @
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SOMEONE IS DOING SOMETHING NASTY!
Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
It is also possible that a host key has just been changed.
The fingerprint for the RSA key sent by the remote host is
XX:XX...:XX.
Please contact your system administrator.
Add correct host key in /Users/user/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
Offending RSA key in /Users/user/.ssh/known_hosts:5
RSA host key for 192.168.1.3 has changed and you have requested strict checking.
Host key verification failed.

If that in fact is your linux server and the host key has been changed, then you may resolve this by editing ~/.ssh/known_hosts on your Mac and removing the fifth (5th) line which should be for the linux server (192.168.1.3) you're connecting.
