Hi Hanni,


Are you able to view the content from the commndline?

When accessing the files from Web Ui, the default user as per hadoop.http.staticuser.user is drwho. So make sure this user has the necessary permissions for the file. As the file has read permission for others, do check the Namenode logs for any warnings. Also, try using a different browser and check if above doesn't help.
