Question hostapd on new install issue?

Hey everyone.

Just fresh installed the amd64 v4.4 on a new home server I'm building. Nothing too crazy, just an upgraded replacement over my current i386 v4.3 box. The main new feature is that I'm adding an atheros based wireless card to let the server act as a wap.

Everything installs correctly, but when I go to run hostapd, I get this:

# hostapd
hostapd: /etc/hostapd.conf: group/world readable/writeable
failed to open the main config file: /etc/hostapd.conf
# ls /etc/hostapd.conf

Not sure why it's having a problem opening - config file is in the right place ( I have even tried placing it elsewhere and specifying it, to no avail). I've tried the default config file as well as my custom one (pretty much just activating WPA and setting up the passphrase).

Any ideas on why it's doing this? If you need any additional info let me know.
