PyCharm remote SFTP file transfer fails: Permission Denied

This was working since I downloaded the program, but today I cannot upload files to a remote machine via SFTP even though the SSH and the SFTP connection test in deployment>connection results in a successful connection.

Whenever I try to upload the project files it gives me the following:

Failed to transfer file '/Users/.../PyCharm/server/server_plug/': could not create folder "sftp://". (Permission denied)

I have tried rechecking the settings and the firewall on the remote machine. Also I have tried deleting and adding the Interpreter.

Please help.

Please make sure the user has full read/write permissions to his home directory. SSH to the remote host and try creating the specified directory from the terminal.
