Apache/PHP - failed to open stream

I running Apache 2 and PHP 5 on a Debian host and everything seems to be working, except PHP...

I created the standard info file:
<? phpinfo(); ?>

But I get the following errors:

Warning: Unknown: failed to open stream: Permission denied in Unknown on line 0
Warning: Unknown: Failed opening '/web/mysite/info.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in Unknown on line 0

Any idea what is wrong? I can't seem to find the cause of this problem.

what are the permissions for that file and the directory it is in? You can try typing in the following:

chmod 755 /web/mysite
chmod 755 /web/mysite/info.php

That should give you loose enought permissions for it to work, also your info.php file is in the /web/mysite directory right? If not then your path for this site in your httpd.conf file is set wrong.
