Exclamation problem whit rights in /web/

Got a customer that complain that his PHP script, se below:

copy('textfile.php', 'textfile_copy.php');

then i got this error in webbrowser:

"Warning: copy(textfile_copy.php) [function.copy]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/web38/web/copy.php on line 2"

Webroot permission is:

"drwxrwxr-x 11 web38_admin web38 4096 2011-03-17 14:03 web"

If i make a new dir under /wweb/prov/ anf make it chmod 777 it works and the new file getting the following permission and user

"-rw-r--r-- 1 www-data www-data 17 2011-03-17 14:05 textfile_copy.php"

My question is how i can change this so i dont need to use chmod 777?

Is this tread the solution om my problem also?
if it is how would it effect the websites under the installation, and hpw do i revert the installation if it fail?
