I'm running RedHat 8.0 and Apache 2.0.45.
I'm trying to make Gallery ( 1.3.3 work
with a folder mounted from my Win2000 box to the
Linux box using the Sharity daemon(
This Sharity daemon allows my Win2000 shared folder to
appear as a normal filesystem on my Linux box.  As a normal
user I can see the folders and access the files within them.

This code:
# cat -n test.php
     1  <?php
     2  $name="/JPs_Photos";
     3  echo "$name being used...<br>";
     4  $dir = opendir($name);
     5  while($entry = readdir($dir))
     6  {
     7          if(is_dir($entry))
     8                  echo "$entry is a dir<br>";
     9          else
    10                  echo "$entry is NOT a dir<br>";
    11  }
    12  ?>

Yields this output:
/JPs_Photos being used...

Warning: opendir(/JPs_Photos): failed to open dir: Permission denied in /home/www/htdocs/gallery/setup/test.php on line 4

Warning: readdir(): supplied argument is not a valid Directory resource in /home/www/htdocs/gallery/setup/test.php on line 5

Yet, I can see/access this directory while on linux:
# ls -ald /J*
drwxrwxrwx    2 root     root       131072 May  8 01:01 /JPs_Photos

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

Looks like www-user or httpd user does not have privaliges to browse the mounted filesystem..

try su\'ing as httpd and see if you can read files..
