  You need to read the debug output.  ALL OF IT.

  Reading only part of it means you're ignoring messages which will help you solve the problem.

The module requires a "known good" password, which it uses to validate the password given in the RADIUS packet. That "known good" password must be supplied by another module (e.g./rlm_files/,/rlm_ldap/, etc.), and is usually taken from a database.

  Since you haven't said what you did, I can only guess.

  If you follow the documentation, it WILL WORK.  See the Wiki:
