<?php
$file = fopen("/Users/abx/Downloads/weight_nsp_ben.csv","r");
print_r(fgetcsv($file));
fclose($file);
?>

Can you edit your php.ini file? Look for a value like this:

allow_url_fopen = off

Change to:

allow_url_fopen = On

And add or change this line below it:

If:

allow_url_include = off

Change to (or add):

allow_url_include = on

Put the CSV file in the same directory as your PHP file for a test.  OSX is an interesting combination of BSD Unix and proprietary Apple code.  I think that means that permissions are not necessarily straight forward.

Worked great putting it in the same directory.  I had a permission error on trying to modify php.ini.

Glad you got it working.  There is a 'block' of sorts between the GUI and the command line in OSX.  Some things can only be accessed thru the 'Terminal' app.  I think they did that to get keep less sophisticated users from screwing up their computers.
