I have resolved this by setting files to 644 permissions

Hi w2kd,

Thanks for the update - I'm glad you were able to resolve the issue!

For those who might be curious, some webservers will not open files with certain permission configurations - in particular they will prevent access to files that are too permissive. In this case, having the permissions set to 666 allows anyone to write to the file, which was likely the cause of the issue. Tightening the permissions to 644 (only the owner of the file has write access) satisfies the webserver's rules.
