    Try changing the file's/directory's owner and/or group to nobody.

    chown nobody /file/you/want/php/to/write/to
    chgrp nobody /file/you/want/php/to/write/to

    Thanks. I tried this, with no luck. PHP isn't in safemode and open_basedir isn't set.

    I'm totally lost.

    I wrote a simple diagnostics script to test fopen on its own - the diagnostic script works, indicating this has nothing to do with server configuration.

    Thanks all!
