    I have such a difficult time trying to install recaptcha plugin into wordpress 3.0.2 MU.

    im using linux centos 5.5 and kloxo control panel for my webhosting. i think this shouldnt matter but who knows.

    i followed the instructions from here:

    To install in WordPress MU (Forced Activation/Site-Wide):

    1- Upload the wp-recaptcha folder to the /wp-content/mu-plugins directory
    2- Move the wp-recaptcha.php file out of the wp-recaptcha folder so that it is in /wp-content/mu-plugins
    3- Now you should have /wp-content/mu-plugins/wp-recaptcha.php and /wp-content/mu-plugins/wp-recaptcha/
    4- Go to the administrator menu and then go to Site Admin > reCAPTCHA
    Get the reCAPTCHA keys here and/or the MailHide keys here

    * I dont see any reCAPTCHA in the site admin ? where is this ?
    * do i need to install recaptcha also in plugins directory ?
    * do i need to set any permission to mu-plugins ?
    * recaptcha file is in zip, do i unzip in windows first, then transfer files one by one using ftp ?

    now if i put wp-recaptcha folder and wp-recaptcha.php into mu-plugins, the mainpage doesnt even load.

    HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.

    I got the same problem.

    I got it to "work" though by editing the plugin file. But even when it isn't crashing WordPress it doesn't stop registration spam for WordPress multisite.

    Please fix!

    Use the Conditional CAPTCHA for WordPress Version 3.2.1 | By Samir Shah instead. Get api keys from recaptcha site then paste the keys in conditional captcha settings.
