Getting "cannot open index file: Permission denied" error with swish-e on EL3.0

The search engine was working fine on AS 2.1 linux; I migrated to EL 3.0;
I have recompiled swish-e and installed it.
Local search and indexing works fine.
But when I search via a browser, I get the following error.
"Could not open the index file: Permission denied".
I have given 'rw' access to everyone and I still get this error.
Your help is much appreciated.

Thank you,
