CAPTCHA not working

CAPTCHA not working was created by msdwebmaster
I built a site using Joomla v1.5.8, CB v1.2 RC 2 and CAPTCHA plugin v2.2.1 on my sandbox and it worked perfectly:

When I migrated the site to the live domain which is hosted on the exact same server, however, no image or audio shows up:

I'm confused about why it no longer works when I'm using the exact same versions of all software components both places.

The only thing that has changed is I've beefed up the security on the site in it's new home at based on the recommendations of the Joomla Security Checklist on the documentation wiki...

The configuration.php has been relocated outside of public_html, as have the tmp and logs directories.

I need help getting this to work as it's a critical issue.

CB captcha needs the configuration.php file, to access the database for the sessions info.

If you relocate it outside of the normal place you will need to change the CB sessions library as well.

Or just put back configuration.php at its normal place, as changing its place implies hacking joomla, and we don't support nor recommend hacks. ;)
