my web can not register new user | Forum

I used Windows 7, and I installed ampps. In this software, I installed oxwall. Installation was successful, when I clicked on registration, I could not register. Under the header section, the error was: Captcha validator error!

The pictures are as follows.

How can we solve this problem? Can I add a new username and password as an administrator?

Welcome to Oxwall forum.   Is your site on maintenance mode?   And no you cannot add user as admin without a plugin.  Check the store..  :)

Where to check if the website is in maintenance mode? How to cancel maintenance mode? Can you tell me the procedure? Thanks very much.

This error is more common than you imagine, it happened to me when I installed it once in xampp then I went to linux, for now I advise you to unbalance the captcha in


-Captcha Settings-

Take your tests and learn from the software.

Thank you very much for your reply. Captcha Settings - Enable on Join form. I canceled the selection. The registration page did not display the authentication code, but I still could not register. Page Tip: Please fill in the form. Are there any fields that are not displayed on my browser?

Do you know how to use the browser console?  If so see if there are any errors there.

Also add your site url to your profile so we can help you.

I opened the console without any error messages.

Deactivate all 3rd party plugins and try again.
