Hi guys, so i get this PHP error:
CODE
PHP Warning:  fopen(cache//afile.json): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/index.php on line 55

I know the chmod command, but don't know if thats what i need to use, and if i do need to use that, I don't know how to give my PHP permission. Any help is appreciated!

Good.
It would be nice though if you could post your solution, so anyone with a similar problem can benefit from that.
That's a purpose of the forums too.

You need to make sure that your file '/cache/afile.json' have read permissions for apache process
Usually you can just run 'chmod a+r cache/afile.json' to make sure that everyone can read that file. Almost sure that apache doesn't need to change it.
You also can run 'chown www-data:www-data /var/www -R' to make sure that apache process have all rights on those files too.
It can be dangerous in the production environment but still good for the test or development server.

Take a look here to find more examples about Linux file permissions too.
