I'm having trouble adding ReCAPTCHA to my phpBB 2.0.21 install. When I attempt to apply the patch via SSH ("patch -b usercp_register.php < /path/to/usercp_register.patch" as instructed in the link above) I get a "Permission Denied" error. I've got the patch file in the includes directory but it doesn't seem to matter where I put it (changing the path accordingly, of course.) I'm assuming there's a way around this that doesn't involve being root?
Thanks Very Much
Note: the answer may be totally obvious. If so, I apologize. I have the flu and my head is swimming, but we're being inundated with spam accounts right now.
