    after searching too many days and doing lots of installs, I finally come and ask for help.
    Following the tuto for installing freeradius on Cent0s 5.2 , I always got following error when launching " radiusd -X ;

    /etc/freeradius/sites-enabled/default[152]: Failed to find module "sql".
    /etc/freeradius/sites-enabled/default[62]: Errors parsing authorize section.
    Errors initializing modules
    I had same problem when installing FR on Ubuntu 8.10 and Debian Lenny!

    This is a question I found very often on the net and never saw any solution!

    Please help me ;) ;) ;)

    Great thanks for your help, comments or suggestions ;)

    On Debian/Ubuntu, I guess you need to install the package freeradius-mysql.

    Thanks for your reply!

    I did install freeradius-mysql on Debian & Ubuntu. I tried on systems where LAMP was installed and also tried on " minimal systems" and installed mysql afterwards!

    On Cent0s, I made my own " FR2.1.1-6.i386 centos rpm" using your tuto and installed them exactly how you described. I tried on VMware images "The_Perfect_Server_-_CentOS_5[1][1].2" and also a fresh installed Cent0s 5.3.

    I did not have such problems with Freeradius v 1....... Maybe I should try again with older 1.1.7 version !! ?? What are the great changes in new FR v2 version??
    Sorry for all thoses questions. Just a little help should be enough to put me back on the right rails ;) ;) ;)

    Great thanks and nice Sunday.

    Please help !!

    Sorry for being so insistant ;)

    What could be the origin of these errors ? My radius.log remains empty and I don't know in what direction to look to solve my error (Sure I did make one or more errors !! )

    I just installed FR on a Fedora 9 (Perfect Server) and had same error when executing " radiusd -X "

    Great thanks for your precious help.

    I have no experience with FreeRadius, but I guess that the MySQL module needs to be enabled in some configuration file.

    Here is how I solved this

    Yes, SOLVED !!

    Sure I'm not the only one having this problem. After searching and reading docs more carefully, I finally found the cause of the problem.

    I simply had to UNcomment line 660 of radiusd.conf:
    #$INCLUDE sql.conf
    I hope this will help some members and avoid them loosing time as I did ;) ;)

    Greetings to all.
