Setting up freeradius rlm_rest module

why are you working/setting up such a hideously old version of Ubuntu?  all
your libraries and toolsets are old - luckily
the EOL for even the longest of LTS is next week!  ;-)

regarding the rest module - all the docs are in the module config (which
can be read eg here

if you use the rest module, simply list it in the required place in your
virtual server config file - eg in authorize ,
the module will then call its 'authorize' section -  which, as you can see
in the module config , is a simple
GET by default.... which includes the various things you want to send to
your web server.... your server then responds
with the required code - all documented in the config.   if you want secure
connection to your server then configure TLS as required.

finally, there is a demo server, written in PERL to help you along.   if
you want to provide a similar basic demo in PHP for the project
then please do so :)
