    553 Rename/move failure: No such file or directory
    ERROR:> [10/22/2006 1:23:40 AM] Access denied.

    SSH in and type:

    cd /home/<USERNAME>/public_html

    chown <USERNAME>:<USERNAME> -R *

    Replace all instances of <USERNAME> with the actual username of the account.

    The chown command above will recursively change the owner of all files, directories, and sub-directories in the public_html folder to the username you specify.
