I am not a FreeSide user much less developer.  

1) Does /usr/local/etc/freeside exist?

2) Does /usr/local/etc/freeside/secrets exist?

3) What are their permissions?

If they don't exist, I would create the directory, with appropriated
ownership and permissions, then re-run freeside-setup.  

If the directory exists but has no secrets file, touch it into existence
and set the permissions to be the same as other files in that directory.
Probably not "other" readable.

Maybe someone with actual experience will be more helpful.  But until
they show up, I thought I'd offer some basic guesses.
