    I can't get the Captcha images to run on Linux..have it working on other servers just fine....

    Turn on display errors and the system will spit out the error to your screen.

    Probably, the Capcha script asks you which form has to be protected.
    Try to set the absolute path to the form, like /var/www/webX/web/contactform.html instead of contactform.html.

    I get no errors returned.

    Where do I go change this absolute path at....not familiar.

    Thanks so Much for your reply.

    I can't tell you that, it depends on the software supplier.
    The Capcha software, i use has an own admin page, where settings for the Capcha can be befined, like:
    Fontstyle, Fontsize, Number of characters, colour or B/W, form name to protect and so on.
    With the software i use, i had to define the absolute path, not the relative.
    For this reason, i wanted to give you a hint.

    I'm not using captcha software, I'm using the .php security images captcha piece integrated onto a webform so that it throws up random security letters/characters.

    Thanks anyhow.

    Any errors in Apache's error log?

    I don't have that type of access as it is shared hosting.

    If the allow configuration override in apache you can turn on php display_errors using a .htaccess file in that directory then the error's will be displayed in the browser.

    right. I receive no errors. I was replying to the fact I can't get to Apache's error logs.

    Sorry about the confusion!
