Fixing Authentication refused: bad ownership or modes for directory

If you get this error in /var/log/secure when trying to setup public key authentication (auto-login), the problem is related to permissions on your home directory or your ~/.ssh directory.

The user home directory cannot be group writeable, and there are specific www.ourhealthissues.com/product/wellbutrin/ permissions required in the .ssh directory as well.

Perform the following commands on the user account you are trying to setup:

    chmod go-w ~
    chmod 700 ~/.ssh
    chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
