SFTP remote open permission denied

I'm running Apache on Ubuntu. I have chmod'ed my public_html directory to 775. I'm using the standard terminal sftp client (whatever one is pre-installed on macs). When I try to 'put' a file from my local computer up to my Linode server I get a message saying remote open: Permission denied

May be the user in question doesn't have write permission to public_html directory.

you could try this:

make sure your user is a member of the www-data group:

sudo usermod -a -G www-data $USER

then give group permissions:

sudo chmod -R 775 /var/www
