radpostauth is populated in the post-auth  section via the sql module

radacct is populated in the accounting section via the sql module

So,  if radacct is not being populated you have various options

1. APs aren't sending accounting data
(Look at their config and radius debug output)
2. Accounting packets not reaching radiusd 
(Check eg iptables and radiusd debug (
3. sql not being called in accounting section
(Check config and look at radiusd debug output)
4. Accounting packets from AP aren't legit .
(Traffic dump. Check contents.  Look at radiusd in debug and see what output shows)

All this is basic trouble shooting
