  Read the debug output.

  And use "radiusd -X", not "radiusd -Xx".  And don't post the debug output double-spaced.

  You didn't configure the SQL module correctly.

  I've edited the debug output below to look like it was done with "radiusd -X":

  This is why we tell everyone to READ the debug output.  It tells you EXACTLY what is going wrong, and how to fix it.

  Please READ the documentation, and follow the instructions.  It's MUCH more efficient than doing random things, and wondering why the server doesn't work.
