Scenario:

User login's to the website and access a file using file_get_contents.

Issue:

Let's say the user is not logged in and still want to access the file. When trying to access the file using "file_get_contents" as shown below

$file_contents = file_get_contents(DIR."/$FILENAME");
 
Apache Error log: [<a href='function.file-get-contents'>function.file-get-contents</a>]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in *******.php on line xxx
 
[<a href='function.file-get-contents'>function.file-get-contents</a>]: failed to open stream: File exists in *******.php on line xxx


Whats the cause of this error? Is it something related to user not logged in the php Session? How do i solve it?

file reading permission denied has nothing to do with session or user log in. You better look at your file permission. also if the request file is a php file then read write might not be possible at all
