What I have found that everything from / to the level where the files are
has to have the right permissions.  The files were symlinked to 8 levels
down from the the / directory.  What the problem turned out to be was
/home had -rwxr-x--- which prevented the websever running a nobody from
accessing the files.  So my advice is to start at / and make sure o has
the necessary permisison all the way.
