You're going to need to do some reading about filesystem things.  You
gave the file various nonsensical permissions.  That last one for
example was owner read, write and execute, group and world execute
only (not read, not write).  You would normally use something like 640
(to put it another way, owner read+write, group read only, world none).
A configuration file almost never needs any execute permissions.

I'd probably make the file owned by the same user that's running the
daemon which needs to read the file, and make the permissions 600
