Duplicate module "sql sql", in file /etc/freeradius/mods-enabled/sql

Thanks Alan

I had these settings in my /etc/freeradius/radiusd.conf file under modules

        $INCLUDE mods-enabled/
        $INCLUDE mods-enabled/sql

This was a root cause. So I commented out $INCLUDE mods-enabled/sql to get
it going.

But this way doesn't seem to be working because I have configured a user
defined module   "chillispot_max_bytes" under instantiate section, and when
I run freeradius -X command, I get an error chillispot_max_bytes is an
unknown module. But actually an include statement at the end of
mods-enabled/sqlcounter including a file which contains this contains this
user-defined module. This is how I did it

$INCLUDE ${modconfdir}/sql/counter/mysql/chillispot.conf

When I  open, $INCLUDE ${modconfdir}/sql/counter/mysql/chillispot.conf I

sqlcounter chillispot_max_bytes {
counter_name = Max-Total-Octets
check_name = ChilliSpot-Max-Total-Octets
reply_name = ChilliSpot-Max-Total-Octets
reply_message = "You have reached your bandwidth limit"
sql_module_instance = sql
key = User-Name
reset = never
query = "SELECT IFNULL((SUM(AcctInputOctets + AcctOutputOctets)),0) FROM
radacct WHERE username = 'User-Name' AND UNIX_TIMESTAP(AcctStartTime) +
AcctSessionTime > '%%b'"

What would be your opinion, should I just create a chillispot_max_bytes
under /etc/freeradius/mods-enabled/?

Or if you have a working cheat sheet on how to integrate coovachilli with
freeradius, that will be appreciated too.

MOTD: When we stop to think, we often miss our opportunity
