Checkout apache error_log, you may be facing some enforced policy here.
Sometimes it will not allow you access files outside DOCUMENT_ROOT.
If you want to keep your scripts outside of the prying eyes, just named them
something .irev and place the data inside <?rev ?> tags, they will be
executed by apache before sending that that tag will vanish. Even if they
manage to learn which file to call, they will not see anything.
I *love* little hacks!
