    No CAPTCHA image is being displayed on the Register page. Just the ? in place of the CAPTCHA image.

    Thanks in advance for your help Mike.

    Running: Test if your PHP installation will support the CAPTCHA

    Gives this error message:

    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@cotpsite.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Server Error Log shows:

    [Tue Aug 24 23:45:21 2010] [error] [client] File does not exist: /home/cotpsite/public_html/index.php, referer: http://cotpsite.com/makingadifference/wp-admin/plugins.php?page=si-captcha-for-wordpress/si-captcha.php

    Permissions Are: 755 far all the files

    I'm 99% sure that the second error is the one that caused the 500, but it would have only happened if permissions on the /wp-content/plugins/ directory were set to 777. Can you check the permissions on that directory? If they're set to 777, set them to 755.

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    The permissions were set at 777 and I set them to 755.

    I tried the test again and I get the same Internal Server Error message.

    maybe other folders are set to 777 and should be 755
    Check all these:

    The wp-content was set to 777.
    I set it to 755 and the CAPTCHA works perfectly.

    Thanks for your help.

    This is a GREAT plugin.
