Sounds like a permissions error and the file isn't open for reading. Check there's no problem with your local apache or even your SQL server. Also that you're viewing the localhost in your browser rather than the file.

Also see if your system has access rights to the file?

Failing all of that, google the error code you see in your browser. Good luck. :)
