[smokeping-users] Slave cannot open Secrets file (Permisson Denied)

I had this working at one time with giving the secrets file 640 permissions.  Our hardware failed on our Linux server, so I had to re-install all our applications from a backup.  One of the apps was smokeping.  I re-installed the program and just restored the configs from the backup.

Can someone tell me why I'm now having a problem on the slave server trying to open the secrets.conf file on the master server?  I keep getting this error:

WARNING: Opening secrets file /opt/smokeping/etc/secrets.conf: Permission denied

ERROR: we did not get config from the master. Maybe we are not configured as a slave for any of the targets on the master ?

Here is my secrets.conf stat:

stat secrets.conf
