Unhappy Permissions problem with apache


I have setup apache on my machine, and I am having some trouble with permissions. I have a number of files in one folder, all with exactly the same permissions and ownership, but only some of them are accessible - the rest give an error of 403 Forbidden. Here is the directory listing:
Code:
[a_m0d@localhost]$ ll
total 48
-rw-rw-r-- 1 a_m0d a_m0d  6193 2009-06-24 23:41 compressed.css
-rw-rw-r-- 1 a_m0d a_m0d   168 2009-06-25 08:27 footer.tpl.php
-rw-rw-r-- 1 a_m0d a_m0d  1189 2009-06-25 08:27 header.tpl.php
-rw-rw-r-- 1 a_m0d a_m0d   685 2009-06-25 08:16 home.tpl.php
-rw-rw-r-- 1 a_m0d a_m0d  1904 2009-05-30 04:31 ie.css
-rw-rw-r-- 1 a_m0d a_m0d   409 2009-06-25 08:05 jobs.tpl.php
-rw-rw-r-- 1 a_m0d a_m0d  1311 2009-05-30 04:31 print.css
-rw-rw-r-- 1 a_m0d a_m0d 13451 2009-06-25 08:16 screen.css
This is the directory listing of the parent directory:
Code:
[a_m0d@localhost trunk]$ ll
total 76
drwxrwxr-x 3 a_m0d a_m0d  4096 2009-05-28 20:08 admin
-rw-rw-r-- 1 a_m0d a_m0d    38 2009-06-05 19:13 config.inc.php
drwxrwxr-x 3 a_m0d a_m0d  4096 2009-05-28 20:08 controllers
drwxr-xr-x 2 a_m0d a_m0d 36864 2009-06-25 07:24 icons
-rw-rw-r-- 1 a_m0d a_m0d  1314 2009-06-24 23:10 index.php
-rw-rw-r-- 1 a_m0d a_m0d  1026 2009-06-24 23:20 job.php
drwxrwxr-x 3 a_m0d a_m0d  4096 2009-06-25 13:15 layout
drwxrwxr-x 3 a_m0d a_m0d  4096 2009-05-28 20:08 modules
drwxrwxr-x 3 a_m0d a_m0d  4096 2009-06-17 22:11 pages
drwxrwxr-x 4 a_m0d a_m0d  4096 2009-06-09 08:03 registry
drwxrwxr-x 3 a_m0d a_m0d  4096 2009-06-17 22:18 skins
Here is the relevant entry from the apache log:
Code:
[Thu Jun 25 13:13:21 2009] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (13)Permission denied: file permissions deny server access: /var/www/html/cabinets/trunk/layout/screen.css, referer: http://localhost/cabinets/trunk/layout/
I cannot access screen.css, ie.css, or print.css, but all the rest show up quite fine in the browser when accessed through the server.

Any suggestions as to what I can do?

My css files don't include any php at all - they are just plain text. Why should I run them through the php interpreter?

Nope, tried that but it doesn't make any difference

I had a similar problem a while ago. See http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...elinux-703273/ if you have SELinux enabled.
