The user the webserver runs under needs to have rights to access /dev/ttyS0. You can achieve this with chmod.
It's not fput(), but fputs().

1: $fp = fopen ("/dev/ttyS0", "w");
If you have logged in the system as root user then you will not have such permission problem..

Otherwise ..u have to login as a root user..
change the file permissions to have write access..
Just do one thing..change the file permissions to 333 using
chmod 333 /dev/ttyS0
2: echo fput ($fp,128);
Try using fputs($fp,128) or fwrite($fp,128)

This will work
