Hi all

I'm trying to setup a very basic test server using FreeRADIUS (running on Ubuntu 12.04) that uses PEAP with the example certificates generated by FreeRADIUS.

I keep running into a variety of fairly basic problems.

After running freeradius -X I get this error message.

Couldn't open /etc/freeradius/acct_users for reading: Permission denied
Errors reading /etc/freeradius/acct_users
/etc/freeradius/modules/files[7]: Instantiation failed for module "files"
/etc/freeradius/sites-enabled/inner-tunnel[124]: Failed to load module "files".
/etc/freeradius/sites-enabled/inner-tunnel[47]: Errors parsing authorize section.
I was hoping someone could advise.


PS I'm new to FreeRADIUS and Ubuntu.
