More like someone hosed up the permissions on the server, so that when 
the server tries to get to the files, it can't open them.

When you have a LAMP stack or equivalent, all the layers need to be 
configured to talk to each other and have the right permissions. 
Sometimes, you forget to do the right chmods, or you change the userid 
that the server is running under, and forget to put that user in the 
right groups.  Many, many, many ways to screw up.

A disk or network failure can look like this, too.  The front end is 
just fine, but when it goes to open the file on the backend, it's not there.

But fouling up the permissions and access list is the most common way to 
screw things up.
