Permission Denied mkdir in sites/all

I am new to drupal and I decided to try it on the acquia cloud free service. I am trying to create a "libraries" folder in the sites/all folder to copy a javascript file in there as per some tutorial I am following.

I am working in LiveDev mode and have setup my keys. I can connect to my environment via putty and filezilla, however whenever I try to create the directory I get a permission denied message. What am I missing?

Response: New directory is: "/vol/ebs1/gfs/site-name-here/livedev/docroot/sites/all"
Command: mkdir "libraries"
Error: mkdir /vol/ebs1/gfs/site-name-here/livedev/docroot/sites/all/libraries: permission denied
Command: mkdir "/vol/ebs1/gfs/site-name-here/livedev/docroot/sites/all/libraries"
Error: mkdir /vol/ebs1/gfs/site-name-here/livedev/docroot/sites/all/libraries: permission denied

Sorry if this is a noob question. I am also no very strong with linux :(
