Is this a new problem or has it always been like this?
One possible problem is that your Apache server is probably running as
'nobody', trying to read files which are owned by root and which do not
allow read access by anyone else.
Check the ownership flags on the files : if they're
-rwx------ root root
then you have a problem, because no-one except root can access them at
all, and Apache should never be run as root.
