Doing a chown should make no difference when the permissions have read for 
everyone set, although there may be something in sles I don't know about.

Most probably your apache is running as another user, maybe nobody or apache 
or something like that.  Check the httpd.conf file to find out.  You could 
try setting the ownership to those if you want, although the usefullness of 
that is questionable.  

In the end it's difficult to se where the problem really was without knowing 
more - file listings, apache config, etc. and even then the problem might not 
be visible.
