Secure node challenge is failing with allowed run time exceeded

Hi, I have set up the secure node but when a challenge is sent it is failing with allowed run time exceeded and below is the logs.

challenge error
{ Error: EACCES: permission denied, open ‘/home/node/secnodetracker/config/lastExecSec.3101612050’

errno: -13,
code: ‘EACCES’,
syscall: ‘open’,

Note : When I checked there is no folder such as /home/node/secnodetracker/config/, should I create one ?

Please help
