For my server, I need to have some files in a folder called "lib".
But, for some reason, It will not let me rename a directory to lib or create a directory called lib.

Status: Creating directory '/lib'...
Command: MKD lib
Response: 550 lib: Permission denied
Command: RNTO lib
Response: 550 Rename lib: Permission denied

I Don't know whats going on here, and I have no idea why I can't do this.

No real idea here, as it entirely depends on the hoster.

If you can create/rename other directories, then there's the possibility a lib directory already exists, but is off-limits to you as you don't have permissions. Alternatively, the hoster has blocked having a directory with this name (blacklist).

You should ask them.
