It can't be file permissions, I've even tried to set the database file

My guess is still permissions. If you try a raw fopen instead of using pdo, what happens?

ini_set('display_errors', true);
$fp = fopen(dirname(__FILE__).'/frontend.db', 'r');
if ($fp) {
  echo "Opened db<br/>\n";
} else {
  echo "Unable to open db<br/>\n";

Hey Chris,

mmh wonder what could possibly be wrong when even trying 777? :-)

Anyway, just to make sure (and because I'm desperate enough to grasp for
straws right now), I tried exacly what you proposed and it still yields
the same results.

Thanks for your suggestion anyway, sometimes one forgets to try the most
obvious things first :-)
