FreeRADIUS is a free and open-source client/server protocol that provides centralized network authentication on systems. It is a high-performance and feature-rich RADIUS server ships with both server and client, development libraries and RADIUS related utilities. RADIUS allows you to maintain user-profiles and track usage for billing from the central server. It provides support for various databases, including, OpenLDAP, MySQL, Redis, Microsoft AD, Apache Cassandra, PostgreSQL, etc.if(typeof ez_ad_units!='undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[728,90],'howtoforge_com-box-3','ezslot_9',106,'0','0']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-howtoforge_com-box-3-0');daloRADIUS is a web-based application for managing RADIUS server. It is an advanced web-based application for managing hotspots and ISP deployments. It is written in PHP and JavaScript and supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MsSQL as a database backend. It comes with a rich set of features such as, Access Control Lists, graphical reporting, billing engine, graphical reporting, and accounting, create, delete and edit users, create, delete and edit HotSpot, Create, delete and edit NAS, and much more.FreeRADIUS works as the back-end while daloRADIUS works as the front-end.In this tutorial, I will explain step by step how to install FreeRADIUS server and Daloradius web client on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.RequirementsA server running Ubuntu 18.04.A root password is set up on your server.Getting StartedFirst, update your system's package to the latest version with the following command:apt-get update -y apt-get upgrade -yOnce all the packages are updated, restart your system to apply all the configuration changes.(adsbygoogle=window.adsbygoogle[]).push();Install LAMP ServerFirst, you will need to install Apache, MariaDB, PHP and other required packages to your system. You can install all of them with the following command:apt-get install apache2 mariadb-server php libapache2-mod-php php-mail php-mail-mime php-mysql php-gd php-common php-pear php-db php-mbstring php-xml php-curl unzip wget -yOnce all the packages are installed, you can proceed to the next step.Configure Database for FreeRADIUSBy default, MariaDB is not secured. So you will need to secure it first. You can secure it with the following command:mysql_secure_installationAnswer all the questions as shown below:if(typeof ez_ad_units!='undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[728,90],'howtoforge_com-medrectangle-4','ezslot_2',108,'0','0']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-howtoforge_com-medrectangle-4-0');Enter current password for root (enter for none): Just press the EnterSet root password? [Y/n]: YNew password: Enter passwordRe-enter new password: Repeat passwordRemove anonymous users? [Y/n]: YDisallow root login remotely? [Y/n]: YRemove test database and access to it? [Y/n]: YReload privilege tables now? [Y/n]: YNext, you will need to create a database and user for FreeRADIUS. To do so, log in to MariaDB shell with the following command:mysql -u root -pEnter your root password when prompt then create a database and user with the following command:MariaDB [(none)]> CREATE DATABASE radiusdb; MariaDB [(none)]> GRANT ALL ON radiusdb.* TO [email protected] IDENTIFIED BY "password";Next, flush the privileges and exit from the MariaDB shell with the following command:MariaDB [(none)]> FLUSH PRIVILEGES; MariaDB [(none)]> EXIT;Once you have finished, you can proceed to the next step.Install FreeRADIUSBy default, FreeRADIUS is available in the Ubuntu 18.04 default repository. You can install it with the following command:if(typeof ez_ad_units!='undefined')ez_ad_units.push([[580,400],'howtoforge_com-box-4','ezslot_8',110,'0','0']);__ez_fad_position('div-gpt-ad-howtoforge_com-box-4-0');apt-get install freeradius freeradius-mysql freeradius-utilsOnce installed, import the freeradius MySQL database schema with the following command:mysql -u root -p radiusdb use radiusdb;Next, list the created tables using the following command:MariaDB [radiusdb]> show tables;You should see the following output:+--------------------+ Tables_in_radiusdb +--------------------+ nas radacct radcheck radgroupcheck radgroupreply radpostauth radreply radusergroup +--------------------+Next, exit from the MariaDB shell with the following command:MariaDB [radiusdb]> EXIT;Next, you will need to define your database connection details in freeradius SQL module. You can do it by editing /etc/freeradius/3.0/mods-enabled/sql file:nano /etc/freeradius/3.0/mods-enabled/sqlMake the following changes as per your database:sql driver = "rlm_sql_mysql"dialect = "mysql"# Connection info:server = "localhost"port = 3306login = "radius"password = "password"# Database table configuration for everything except Oracleradius_db = "radiusdb"read_clients = yesclient_table = "nas"Save and close the file, when you are finished. Then, change the ownership of /etc/freeradius/3.0/mods-enabled/sql with the following command:chgrp -h freerad /etc/freeradius/3.0/mods-available/sql chown -R freerad:freerad /etc/freeradius/3.0/mods-enabled/sqlFinally, restart freeradius service to apply all the configuration changes:systemctl restart freeradiusYou can also verify the freeradius status with the following command:systemctl status freeradiusYou should see the following output:? freeradius.service - FreeRADIUS multi-protocol policy server Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/freeradius.service; disabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: active (running) since Wed 2019-08-07 09:20:34 UTC; 14s ago Docs: man:radiusd(8) man:radiusd.conf(5) Process: 45159 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/freeradius $FREERADIUS_OPTIONS (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Process: 45143 ExecStartPre=/usr/sbin/freeradius $FREERADIUS_OPTIONS -Cxm -lstdout (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Main PID: 45161 (freeradius) Tasks: 6 (limit: 4650) CGroup: /system.slice/freeradius.service ??45161 /usr/sbin/freeradiusOnce you have finished, you can proceed to the next step.Install daloRADIUSNext, you will need to install daloRADIUS to manage FreeRADIUS from the web browser.First, download the latest version of daloRADIUS from the Git repository with the following command:wget downloaded, unzip the downloaded file with the following command:unzip master.zipNext, move the extracted directory to the Apache web root directory with the following command:mv daloradius-master /var/www/html/daloradiusNext, import daloRADIUS mysql tables to radiusdb with the following command:cd /var/www/html/daloradius mysql -u root -p radiusdb mysql -u root -p radiusdb chmod 664 /var/www/html/daloradius/library/daloradius.conf.phpNext, open daloradius.conf.php file and define the database connection details:nano /var/www/html/daloradius/library/daloradius.conf.phpMake the following changes that match your database:$configValues['DALORADIUS_VERSION'] = '1.1-1';$configValues['DALORADIUS_DATE'] = '28 Jul 2019';$configValues['FREERADIUS_VERSION'] = '2';$configValues['CONFIG_DB_ENGINE'] = 'mysqli';$configValues['CONFIG_DB_HOST'] = 'localhost';$configValues['CONFIG_DB_PORT'] = '3306';$configValues['CONFIG_DB_USER'] = 'radius';$configValues['CONFIG_DB_PASS'] = 'password';$configValues['CONFIG_DB_NAME'] = 'radiusdb';Save and close the file. Then, restart freeradius and apache service with the following command:systemctl restart freeradius systemctl restart apache2You can also check the status of Apache web service with the following command:systemctl status apache2You should see the following command:? apache2.service - The Apache HTTP Server Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/apache2.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Drop-In: /lib/systemd/system/apache2.service.d ??apache2-systemd.conf Active: active (running) since Wed 2019-08-07 09:25:56 UTC; 4min 25s ago Process: 45483 ExecStop=/usr/sbin/apachectl stop (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Process: 45489 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/apachectl start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Main PID: 45505 (apache2) Tasks: 11 (limit: 4650) CGroup: /system.slice/apache2.service ??45505 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start ??45510 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start ??45511 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start ??45512 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start ??45513 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start ??45517 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start ??45519 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start ??45520 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start ??45521 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start ??45527 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start ??45528 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k startAug 07 09:25:55 openshift systemd[1]: Starting The Apache HTTP Server...Aug 07 09:25:56 openshift systemd[1]: Started The Apache HTTP Server.Once you have done, you can proceed to the next step.Access daloRADIUS Web InterfaceFreeRADIUS and daloRADIUS are now installed and configured. It's time to access daloRADIUS web interface. To access the web inetrface, open your web browser and type the URL -server-ip/daloradius/login.php. You will be redirected to the daloRADIUS login page:Now, provide default username and password as administrator / radius, and click on the Login button.
