I'm trying to from a file in a directory called 'logs'.  I've never seen
this error before.  What does it mean?

Warning: fopen("logs/993700800.log","w+") - Permission denied in
/home/sites/site20/users/guide/web/counter.php on line 28

Warning: Supplied argument is not a valid File-Handle resource in
/home/sites/site20/users/guide/web/counter.php on line 29

Warning: Supplied argument is not a valid File-Handle resource in
/home/sites/site20/users/guide/web/counter.php on line 30

The last two errors are becuase the first fails to return a file handle.
Here's the actual offending code.  It's just a simple counter.

$iDate = mktime(0, 0, 0, date("m"), date("d"), date("Y"));
$iCount = 1;
$sFile = "logs/".$iDate.".log";

if (file_exists($sFile)) {
 $iCount = incCount($sFile);
} else {

echo "<B><FONT COLOR=BLUE>$iCount</FONR></B>";

function incCount($sFile) {
 // Open and read existing count
 $hCounter = fopen($sFile, "r");
 $iCount = fgets($hCounter, 1024);
 // Write over it with the new count
 $hCounter = fopen($sFile, "w");
 fputs($hCounter, ++$iCount);
 return $iCount;

function createCountLog($sFile) {
 $hCounter = fopen($sFile, "w+");
 fputs($hCounter, 1);


Usually I've been able to fix every PHP error I've gotten in the past -
they've been pretty straightforward - but I've been playing around with this
error for a few days now to no avail.

I'm new to this mailing list and have never used it before so I'm not sure
which one/s to join or post this specific message to.  I apologize if this
is the wrong forum for this type of question.  Thank you for your time.
