Dear the debug is showing nothing only the reject as it is not getting the
Accept from the script.
But when I use sing option  -v  it prompt me for password and after
entering the password user connected. But I require to get the username and
password from the command

Httpasswd -bv testpassfile $username $password

Only problem that freeradius is not passing both option to script -bv  it
works fine with single option -b or -v.
But our need is -bv and httpasswd required both username and password with
-bv to authenticate.
