I am seeing some error like below in my nginx error log:

2012/04/20 11:51:52 [crit] 21437#0: *2548 open()
"/var/cache/nginx/fastcgi_temp/5/00/0000000005" failed (13: Permission
denied) while reading upstream, client:, server:,
request: "GET /index.php HTTP/1.0", upstream: "fastcgi://",
host: "", referrer: ""

I have: user                    www-data; in my nginx.conf and
the owners of the  /var/cache/nginx/fastcgi_temp/5/00 are 'nginx:nginx'

How can I fix this?
