My guess: Your hosting company has setup apache to run scripts as you,
which helps protect other customers' data. Therefore you can read them.

Your home server runs them as www-data or something, which I think is the
default. So the files are owned by www-data, and not readable by you.

What the best way is to get it to work how you want, I don't know.
