What do I do if I get a "Permission denied" error when attempting to start or status rhn-database service on my RHN Satellite 5.1 Server?

A "Permission denied" error is encountered when attempting to start or check status of the rhn-database service on a Red Hat Network (RHN) Satellite 5.1 Server, for example:

[root]# service rhn-database status
Can't open config file '/etc/rhn/default/rhn_web.conf': Permission
denied at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/PXT/Config.pm line 59.
