I created an FTP server using the guide, and I get a 550 error whenever I try to upload anything from my newly created account.
What guide? What client? Does the user you’re logging in as have access to the folder you’re trying to upload to?
Sorry, my original question was unbelievably vague.

Client is cyberduck.
AFAIK the user should have access—is there a way to check this?
Whats the exact error your FTP client is trowing?
