Captcha not working and JsonRpcContrib is not enabled or is not installed
I installed Foswiki and several extensions including CaptchaPlugin
, were enabled and I could not find an enable checkbox for JsonRpcContrib
. When I entered the plugin order JsonRpcContrib
, it warned me: "JsonRpcContrib is not enabled or is not installed". But when I go to thie list of extensions to install, it is already installed. I also "reinstalled" it. And also "uninstalled" it and installed it again. Still no show in the list to enable. Although it does have a button up in the top of the extension configuration page, but clicking on it produces no options. Anyone have any ideas?

I hate to say I'm not really sure what is going on. Everything appears to have been installed correctly. I just ran through an install of both plugins on my test 1.1.9 system and it worked okay - except for some unrelated file permissions issues.
I'm wondering if it could be a deeper dependency down in one of the JsonRpcContrib
modules. It reports that it requires JSON and you have that. But internally it also loads:
use Error qw( :try );
Error is shipped with Foswiki, so that should not be an issue. Encode comes with perl, but some distributions package things optionally.
I'm not sure what else to check.

Regarding "JsonRpcContrib is not enabled or installed", Contrib's don't get processed directly by Foswiki. There is no enable/disable for contribs, and no plugin to load. So you should not add it to the PluginOrder
. It will not show up as enabled, and does not need to be.
One more thing to try. From your CLI shell: Change to the foswiki install directory. (Directory above lib). and try the following commands. One or more might fail with more information about what is missing.
perl -I lib -e"require Foswiki::Contrib::JsonRpcContrib"
perl -I lib -e"require Foswiki::Contrib::JsonRpcContrib::Server"
perl -I lib -e"require Foswiki::Contrib::JsonRpcContrib::Request"
perl -I lib -e"require Foswiki::Contrib::JsonRpcContrib::Response"
perl -I lib -e"require Foswiki::Contrib::JsonRpcContrib::Error"

Thanks for the response. It appears that maybe the JSON module wasn't installed properly -- perhaps the path was to an old Perl version or something. When I reinstalled it, this error went away.
