You upgraded both slaves and master, right?

Not sure what this is doing.  To where are you copying?

Ok, you chmodded - good.  Did you also verify that the file is owned by the user calling the file?
Depending on your setup, this would probably either be the user that httpd runs as or a suexec
user.  If you suexec, the secrets file should be owned by the same user that owns smokeping.cgi.

Try starting smokeping using the '--debug' switch.

Good luck,
