Note: The RADIUS authentication plugin is no longer a standard plugin in Moodle 3.2 onwards


If you get an error message saying: "Warning: The Auth_RADIUS module does not seem to be present", you need to follow these steps:

Using debian-based linux (such as Ubuntu):

  1. Install the following modules: php5-dev php5-auth-pam php5-radius php-pear
    sudo apt-get install php5-dev php5-auth-pam php5-radius php-pear
  2. Install Auth_RADIUS module for pear
    sudo pear install radius Auth_RADIUS
  3. Add the following line to your php.ini file
  4. Restart apache services
    sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
