your config file is asking to load the SQL module but you dont
have the SQL support compiled in.  how did you install FreeRADIUS?
via a package, or from source? if from source, did you note the errors
thrown open by the ./configure step? to have SQL support you'd need
the SQL development environment installed. if you dont need
SQL, simply comment it out of your config file.

its best to state the full URL in these cases too. OnLAMP has
many many many tutorials
