SSH - Can't Login (3rd Post)

I checked the following below. The user's home directory has the proper 
permissions (755), the .ssh directory is 700, and the files underneath the .ssh 
directory is 600. By default StrictModes is set to no.

I still can't log in.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, and regards,
Mr. Auteria W. Winzer Jr.

Check the following:

ls -la /home/<USER>/.ssh
ls -la /home

Does the .ssh folder have permissions 700 and files within 600?

Do you have "StrictModes yes" in your sshd_conf file? If so, then the
server will ignore the keys in the .ssh sub-directory if the home
directory is writeable by anyone other than the Owner.
