  It's for logging users who are authenticated, when the server sends an Access-Accept.  It's just one of the many new features added in v3.

This server didn't has this table (radpostauth), and for some reason when I installed the new server with freeradius updates and mysql the table Radacct doesn't have any information. Is empty!

  Because the server isn't receiving Accounting-Request packets.

  The radacct table just contains information from the Accounting-Request packets.  So... if there's nothing in radacct, the server isn't receiving Accounting-Request packets.
