Blogger SFTP Permission Denied Error
This would be of interest to those who use blogger with custom hosting. I recently started switching from FTP to SFTP when publishing in blogger. I kept getting a permission denied error despite the same publishing settings as FTP. Apparently there is a difference, and as Walken would shrug, "Whaddo I know?!"
A file space path: /mydomain.com/ works in ftp but will give you trouble while sftping.
I removed the leading slash: mydomain.com/ and it works like a charm.
BTW, Blogger help mentions the need for the trailing slash, which I already had.
