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

PHP
$file_contents = file_get_contents(DIR."/$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

You are right, i solved the issue. It has nothing to do with the user login or session, i am getting the error because i am calling the wrong file in the code
