I've been trying to change the opermissions of a particular file using the chmod command in php. Though a ver trivial operation ... it is not working.

the command i'm using is:

chmod("/var/www/cgi-bin/new.dat", 0777);

i'm getting the following error:

Warning: chmod failed: Operation not permitted in /var/www/html/new.php on line 2

Both the files viz. new.dat and new.php have the same owner and group.

the current permissions for new.dat are -rw-r--r--
and permissions for new.php are -rwxr-xr-x

what could be the issue? 

Any suggestions will be appreciated :-)
