CAPTCHA field not showing

Mac server, Dreamweaver, Navicat

All other elements in the form are working fine except the Captcha field. I've searched the forum, but nothing seems to fix it.

try browsing to the file that generates the captcha image:
WA_ValidationToolkit/WAVT_CaptchaSecurityImages.php


Post the results of browsing to that file, it should help us figure out what is going wrong.

this means that the GD Library has not been enabled in your php server:
gd_library_ht.pdf

That isn't much of a solution for mac.

The alternative to install MAMP simply installs another testing server; which I already have.

Apparently, what I need is the GD library installed into my php5.2; but nowhere is that option available.

Help!

there really isnt an easy solution for the mac.

the PHP server that is built into the MAC OS is not compiled with GD library support.

you would need to recompile the php server and include the string to compile it with GD support.

the MAC OS kernel is based on Linux, so the compiling php for mac is very similar to compiling it for linux. Here is a tutorial for compiling php fior linux:
install-gd13-for-php-with-apache-on-linux.htm

sorry, i could not find one for mac.

the Simplest solution is to not use the MAC OS PHP testing server, and use MAMP instead, the mamp PHP server has been compiled with GD library support.


in reality, the user registration solution pack is intended to be uploaded to your host webserver so that site visitors can register to your site.

Thanks for the response.

Perhaps I wasn't clear earlier. This IS my hosting computer. It's a mac Leopard server (10.5.8) running Apache 2.0 and php 5.2.12.

So the question remains how do I add the GD library to the host server? What version of php includes it? Or how do I add it?

So far, this doesn't seem like a mac-compatible software.

The other solution is to disable the Captcha feature.

Can you describe how I should do that without endangering any other features?
