Don't forget that the MySQL daemon won't be running as root, it
will be running as mysql. So the mysql user will probably need to
be able to open that file. As the file is 777 that should be
possible so most likely something on the path to the file does
not have search permission for the mysql user.

You can probably skip creation of those functions though, as they
are mainly only used for migration of data and you don't have large
chunks of data in your database to worry about.
