No captch image using FB2 on linux hosting

No captch image using FB2 on linux hosting

I have inserted a form using FormBuilder 2 which works perfect on my windows test system but when uploaded to the linux hosting server the captcha image doesn't display.


I have changed the permissions on the /captcha folder to 777.

I have rolled back to FB1 with the same issue occuring.

So I assume it must be a hosting setup issue.


I have read through many of the threads here with the same issue and applied any possible solutions but the issue still occurs.

I have attached an error_log file that was created by FB if this helps.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Going directly to your webassist/captcha/wavt_captchasecurityimages.php page, I get the error message: "<b>Fatal error</b>: Call to undefined function imagettfbbox()". This usually indicates that either (or both) the GD Library and Freetype support has not been enabled in your remote sever configuration.

Looking at the results of your phpinfo.php, you have the GD Library enabled, but there is no support for FreeType. You will need to contact your hosting provider and ask them to enable support for Freetype on your remote sever configuration (php.ini).

Thank you

Thank you neilo the hosting provider added this feature and the captcha displays perfectly.

I do like the ability to change the captcha image background colour and noise level in the new FB2.
