Hi Alfredo,
In the apache error log - possibly in /var/log/httpd/error_log - but that depends on which server you're running.

You might see something like 'Error contacting recaptcha' if that is the case.

Cheers,
John

Hello,
sorry the right url is: http://www.rmoa.unina.it

@john: where do I find errors?

The server contains only eprints instances.

I try to upgrade the script, and I'll let you know.

Thanks
Alfredo

Hi Alfredo,
Is there anything in the error logs?
Can your server access other websites? It need to be able to contact the Recaptcha service to confirm the response.

It might also be worth looking at:
https://github.com/eprints/eprints/pull/468
which updates the reCaptcha to v2, and has a configuration setting for a proxy - if you server uses on when trying to contact external services.

I think it should work OK on v3.3.14.

Cheers,
John

Hello,
it's some days that one of my archives is under a flood of fake registrations.

I activated a re-captcha plug-in but nothing changed.

The Archive is: http://www.rmaos.unina.it

How can I stop this?

I need help

Thanks,
Alfredo
