freeradius - files vs database


I have read through some of the docs for freeradius but have not been able to figure this one out. If someone could point me to the docs or give me a quick answer it would be much appreciated.

I am wondering if someone knows how the files namely users ties to the database.
In my setup I have a mysql table into which I enter data that parallels directly to the data in the users file... if I delete the info form users it does not effect the functionality of RADIUS and if I add something to users it is not seen to affect the DB. It would be preferable to be able to edit the users file rather then doing SQL inserts to input data.

Is this just a symptom of misconfiguration or are these separate entities?

Thanks in advance.


freeradius, radius
