Trouble with sasl/ssl

I recently set up weechat with sasl/ssl for connecting with freenode. When I connect, it shows that I am using a secure connection. However, I do get the following warnings:

Warning: unable to read passphrase from file “”

To recover your secured data, you can use /secure decrypt (see /help secure)

Passphrase is not set, unable to decrypt data “freenode_username”

Passphrase is not set, unable to decrypt data “freenode”

Passphrase is not set, unable to decrypt data “freenode_password”

Here’s my problem: I can not set my passphrase without decrypting the data, and I can not decrypt the data without a passphrase. I have been researching this for a few days now and can not find an adequate answer. Any help would be appreciated…thx
