That's not what I suggested - the owner doesn't matter. It's the
permissions of the user who invokes the program that counts. For
example, if apache runs as user "web" and if the script writes to a file
owned by user "fred", then it'll work when fred runs it but won't work
when called by apache (that would be like web trying to write on files
owned by fred).

To check, change the apache user to be the same as the user you login as
when the thing works.

Rgds,
Owen Boyle
