You can try:

and various other functions that accept a permissions argument (fopen?) and
see if any of them will let you do this...

Probably not, since then *ANY* PHP-scripter on your server could hijack your
account, and that would be bad, eh?

What your IPS *MIGHT* do is create a GROUP with you and nobody user in it,
and you *MIGHT* be able to chgrp the file to that group, and you *might* be
able to do what you need to do with that file then...
