chmod is usally a function that you would have to have elevated privileges
to perform. Ideally, PHP would be running in an account with only the
minimum of privileges. So you would want to go an chmod the files (or chown
the directory) from the command line or a web hosting control panel or some
such. You should only need to do that once, not every time in your code. If
you have problems figuring out how to do that, consult your hosting
