Auth Type when running exec script to authenticate

Hi all,

Up till now have been using sql to authenticate, and am trying to change 
to my own script and mysql db.

In radiusd.conf I have :

modules {
    exec exec-radauth {
    wait = yes
    program = "/path/to/script.php -- %{User-Name} %{Password}"
    input_pairs = request
    output_pairs = reply

authorize {

This all works perfectly when I include "files" in the authorize section 
and place the following in the users file :

DEFAULT Auth-Type = Accept

But if I exclude "files" from the authorize section I get :

auth: No authenticate method (Auth-Type) configuration found for the 
request: Rejecting the user
auth: Failed to validate the user.

Can anyone point me in the right direction with this problem?
