If it's true that the file in question is only rw by the user ie 0600 or 

-rw-------    1 user     user

then it cannot be read by you OR the webserver -- unless the webserver is 
running as root (unlikely). So the question is, are you 100% positively sure 
that the permissions are as you said only read/write  for the user?
