Not enough info. Please do this:

$ ls -ld /home/my_user_name
$ ls -l  /home/my_user_name/file_daemon_needs_to_read

and show us the output.


ls -ld /home/tanguy/

The UNIX file permisions are kinda screwy. For a file, the
"x" attribute means "execute allowed", but for a directory
"x" attribute means "can change directory to this place".

Try adding "x" to your directory, it may help.

$ chmod 754 /home/tanguy

You may need 755.

I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
