I don't know that environment at all, but you should look at the 
apache.conf or httpd.conf file.  Apache usually starts as "root" or 
"administrator", but then switches to another user with less permissions.
There should be 2 lines
User xxxxx
Group yyyyy
in the configuration file, that indicate which user/group it runs under.
In your case, you may want to change the Group to a group that has write 
permissions to the SQL folder.  If there are other applications running 
under Apache though, be aware that this may cause them to have problems.

But maybe it is safer to wait for someone else's comment, who knows how 
things work under Mac OS X Tiger.
