The OS will enforce whether your server will be able to read the file or 
not, based on permissions. For your personal testing purposes, since you 
are running as ee122-bz, you can create a file, chmod it to deny read 
access to user, group, and all, and then test by letting your server try 
and open it.

That's because it should do what it does when the response is 200 OK.
