My money's on the config file. Perhaps a permissions problem?
If so, the script could probably benefit from better error detection. If an IP address is required (as it seems to be) the code should validate that it has an IP address early on, and give a more informative error message.
Some tools for chasing down the problem:
As others have noted, I'm speculating wildly because we can't see your code. On the other hand, if your script is large it may not be useful to see all of it.
If you can try reducing your script to the minimum amount which reproduces the problem that would be useful. You'll also often find that doing that helps you find the problem yourself.
