Which wiki page?

This page:


...doesn't tell you to use your method. So you're looking at another 
page, or copying it from somewhere older.

You must have done something wrong, either a typo or you're editing the 
wrong file, because FreeRADIUS is not finding that entry:

"noop" from the "files" module means "not found". So, you're doing 
something wrong. Check your config again. Read it carefully.

Better yet, follow the actual docs on the wiki.
