That "eaccess" really is telling you that the file cannot be read. Just 
because the permissions on the files are open doesn't mean the file can 
be read; intermediate directories must be readable too.

I strongly recommend you become the rabbitmq user (with e.g. "sudo -s -u 
rabbitmq") and try to read the files. This should let you diagnose any
