When installing Freeradius on Centos, I get the mods-available folder in here, which contains an sql file:


When installing Freeradius on Ubuntu, it is named differently.


However, there is no mods-available to be found. There are only a modules folder, which doesn't contain sql either.

I have googled a lot without any luck on this. Any advice?


mods-available/ comes by default with FreeRADIUS 3.x (Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty, or Debian Stretch).

In earlier versions modules/ contained mostly the same files, but wasn't as consistent. In the 2.x series (which your Ubuntu version has), the SQL configuration lives in /etc/freeradius/sql.conf and some of the settings are slightly different.

  • Thanks, I should have tagged it as Ubuntu 16.04. But yes you were right, that was because of version 2.0. The latest version is consistent. – Houman Nov 13 '17 at 22:23
