Hi folks,

We  have freeradius running on version 2.2.6 running on CentOS6 for a
few years now.  Now we need to build a need a new host on CentOS7.  I
installed version 3.0.4 from repo.  As I copied my proxy.conf file
from the old host.  I encounter an error and couldn't figure out what
is wrong.

$radiusd -X 2>&1 | tee debugfile
radiusd: FreeRADIUS Version 3.0.4, for host x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu,
built on Mar  5 2015 at 23:41:36

Please pardon me for maybe this is a simple error but I am new to
freeradius and have read doc but couldn't figure it out.
