You will need give the user who is running the httpd daemon (apache by
default) the required access to the files.

If you have things that need to be written, you will need to give that
user (again, apache by default)  write access to those files/directories.

You control who an httpd instance runs as in the httpd.conf file ...
look for User and Group in your httpd.conf file.  This will tell you for
the default install:

egrep '^User|^Group' /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

You will need to set user and/or group permissions on your directory as
required based on who is running the httpd daemon.
