Unable to transfer files through WinSCP: Permission Denied

August 29, 2014 5.9k views

I just set up my server, created a new user, and blocked login access to the root user. I’m now trying to transfer my files (through WinSCP SFTP) to my server using the new user, but it says “permission denied” when I try to transfer the files.

How do I give permissions to the new user in specific directories so that I can transfer my files?
