# Revision history [back]

Your error message seems relatively clear:

[Wed Oct 30 14:17:37 2013] [error] [client 172.16.16.200] FilePermissionError: Insecure key file permissions!


It looks like that error is being triggered by:

SECRET_KEY = secret_key.generate_or_read_from_file('/var/lib/openstack-dashboard/secret_key')


So I would look at the permissions on that key (and on the containing directory) and see if they look sensible. In general, secret keys should only be readable by the user under which your application is running (so, mode 0600).
