Hello all,

So I followed the link to setup the MySQL database to use with Freeradius


But whenever I do this

mysql -u root -p radius < /etc/freeradius/sql/mysql/schema.sql

The error was 

Bash -  mysql -u root -p radius < /etc/freeradius/sql/mysql/schema.sql :
Permission denied


Any idea what the problem is?

I have root password of the machine, of course
