  The debug log shows it writing to radpostauth?

  All we need is the debug output.  It doesn't matter what OS you're running.

a) configure the SQL module

b) put data into SQL

c) run the server in debug mode

d) read the output.  Or post it here.

  The server will print out what it's doing, and what's going wrong.

  If the server is inserting into SQL and you can't find the records in SQL... something is wrong on the SQL server.  Or, there's a cron job which deletes records from SQL.
