So, after a long time away from Diaspora, I'm back, and building a new pod.

After a bit of work, I've got things up and running, and i'm at the point where I'm trying to create my user.

The problem is, on the user creation page, it asks me for all of the usuals, and of course a captcha.  The captcha isnt showing any image though, It simply says "captcha" next to the text box i'm supposed to type the captcha text into.  Which if course doesnt work. 

I'm at a bit of a loss on where to start troubleshooting this.

Thanks for any help!

A little digging found this in the logs, when i try to access the captcha image.

==> production.log <==

Looks like imagemagick isnt allowed to convert?  Some digging on THAT points me to the imagetragic vuln, and suggests that the authorization was removed due to that.  I'm not certain that it's safe to remove that restriction...

I found the following, which got me working at least, but It doesnt sound like its a solution.
