Hi,
"550 - Requested action not taken. File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)."
Perhaps there is a permission problem?
Might it be that your server doesn't support passive mode (I'm not familiar with the CentOS environment)?
One could also think of a character set problem (single byte/double byte/unicode)

This is something I found on the error - it is for cuteFTP, but I would guess error codes are standard. See issue 2, you may not have get privileges (or rw) on the remote servers directory.

CAUSE
        

Example 1:

    In this example the 550 code returned by the remote FTP server is for information purposes only.  It is not an error and should be ignored by the user.  In this case an upload command has already been given but before the upload can be started CuteFTP needs it determine whether or not the file being transferred already exists on the remote site as either a file or a folder.

          o
            First, the SIZE command is sent in an attempt to determine if a file with the same name exists on the remote site.  The server responds with a 550 indicating that the file does not already exist there.
          o Next, the CWD command is sent in an attempt to determine if a folder with the same name exists on the remote site.  The server responds with a 550 indicating that a folder by that name does not exist.
          o Finally, the STOR command is given and the file upload begins.

Example 2:

    A file upload is being attempted but the remote server has denied the needed permission.  The 550 error code is a result of insufficient account privileges on the remote FTP server.  The error is not caused by CuteFTP.

        
RESOLUTION
        

Example 1:

    Not applicable.  In this example the 550 code returned by the remote FTP server is for information purposes only.  It is not an error and should be ignored by the user.

Example 2:

    If you believe that your FTP account privileges or permissions are configured incorrectly, contact the technical support department at the remote FTP site or your Web hosting company for help.

This means that the directory on the ftp server is either not writable and you cannot put files there, or it is not readable and you cannot read the directory contents with CuteFTP ...

Does the error occur when you simply open your ftp program and change to the directory, or only when you try and upload?
