I have installed the Recaptcha plugin and followed all instructions and renamed the directory afterwards, no cache/prod directory , one cache under var/cache but empty no prod directory. I’m running Mautic 3.2.5 and installed the : mautic 3 & 4: [mautic-recaptcha.zip]. When I go in the Mautic dashboard I don’t see the Recaptcha directory even by clicking: Install/upgrade it says 0 plugin installed or updated? Any ideas? Thanks
When you say ‘installed’, there are couple of important steps:
- download, unzip
- make sure the folder’s name in the plugin directory is: MauticRecaptchaBundle
- make sure file ownership is right. the files should belong to the same user as your www user (or the rest of the files)
- clear mautic cache
Thanks for the reply:
1- Yes downloaded and unzipped
2- Yes I renamed the folder: MauticRecaptchaBundle
3- You mean the file ownership in Windows ( I don’t understand that part) (is it file permission from FTP?)
4- The only cache directory I see it at this path: /var/cache (it’s always empty)
Maybe you have a better solution to block spammers or bots from opting in to Mautic forms? I tried using the Configuration section - Form Settings - Do not accept submission from these domain names :
I entered all the .ru domains to block but it still coming in. I also created a Honeypot but it still goes through so not sure if the Recaptcha will work. So that is my last resource to try to block these spammers which I get about 1 opt-in per minute. Thanks
Hi, have you seen this tutorial?
You can change your apache config in a way that a lot of bots can be filtered out.
