When I create a file using the FOPEN function and then try to change permissions on the file it says it cant be done because Bad File Descriptors. PHP version 5.1.6

Reproduce code:
$conn_id = chmod_open();

$ourFileName = "testFile.txt";
$ourFileHandle = fopen($ourFileName, 'w') or die("can't open file");

function chmod_open()
   // Use your own FTP info
   $ftp_user_name = 'vikoshos';
   $ftp_user_pass = 'frath0pr';
   $ftp_root = '/';
   $ftp_server = 'localhost';
   $conn_id = ftp_connect($ftp_server);
   $login_result = ftp_login($conn_id, $ftp_user_name, $ftp_user_pass);
   return $conn_id;

function chmod_file($conn_id, $permissions, $ftpath)
  echo "$ftpath";
  if (ftp_site($conn_id, 'CHMOD ' . $permissions . ' ' . $ftp_root . $ftpath) !== false)
       return TRUE;
       return FALSE;

chmod_file($conn_id, 0777, $ourFileName);

Expected result:
Change the file mod to 777

Actual result:
Warning: ftp_site() [function.ftp-site]: Could not change perms on newfile.txt: Bad file descriptor in code.php on line 168
