I suspect you have the following situation:

  drwx------  2 rwgk cci 4096 Mar 14 10:47 phenix-1.1a

I.e. when you installed phenix the "umask" was set such that "group"
and/or "others" don't have read permission. Please verify my suspicion

  ls -d $PHENIX

If you see the "drwx------" or maybe "drwxr-x---" it is easy to fix.
Use the su command to become root, then:

  find phenix-1.1a -exec chmod go+r {} \;
  find phenix-1.1a -type d -exec chmod go+x {} \;
