Really? The debug log shows otherwise

# Executing section authorize from file
+- entering group authorize {...}
++[files] returns noop
[pap] WARNING! No "known good" password found for the user.
Authentication may fail because of this.

That means files module did not do anything (i.e. it doesn't find a
line matching the request). From initialization section:

 Module: Instantiating module "files" from file
  files {
	usersfile = "/usr/local/etc/raddb/users"
	acctusersfile = "/usr/local/etc/raddb/acct_users"
	preproxy_usersfile = "/usr/local/etc/raddb/preproxy_users"
	compat = "no"

Did you edit the file shown in "usersfile"? Did you follow the example
there? What does it contain now?

Not if you use common sense. Most software (including FR) contains
pretty good documentation (including comments in the configuration
file). But you need to read it.

The alternative is actually easy: hire someone capable to do it for you.
