Introduction
------------

There are various reasons to prefer web registration instead of
"in-band" account registration over XMPP. For example the lack of
CAPTCHA support in clients and servers.

Details
-------

mod\_register\_web has Prosody serve a web page where users can sign up
for an account. It implements reCAPTCHA to prevent automated sign-ups
(from bots, etc.).

Configuration
-------------

The module is served on Prosody's default HTTP ports at the path
`/register_web`. More details on configuring HTTP modules in Prosody can
be found in our [HTTP documentation](http://prosody.im/doc/http).

To configure the CAPTCHA you need to supply a 'captcha\_options' option:

        captcha_options = {
          recaptcha_private_key = "12345";
          recaptcha_public_key = "78901";
        }

The keys for reCAPTCHA are available in your reCAPTCHA account, visit
[reCAPTCHA](https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/) for more info.

If no reCaptcha options are set, a simple built in captcha is used.

Customization
-------------

Copy the files in mod_register_web/templates/ to a new directory. Edit them,
and set `register_web_template = "/path/to/your/custom-templates"` in your
config file.
