I did just that.  Permissions are set the /chat folder as it is in all other
folders.  This is the first time I've ever done fopen with "w" and I can't
get it to write, always getting "unable to access" errors. I want to be able
to create the file if it does not exist.  It works for me to do "r" in all
other folders with the same permissions as /chat.
