After struggling for 2 days to get reCAPTCHA to work on my site, I have finally found a fix. So just thought about reporting it here so it would be helpful to others, as I have seen this question a lot here, but no fix.

Problem: reCAPTCHA displays properly, validates properly, but shows error "Please complete the anti-spam verification" when you click submit button on any form registration / question / comment.

Fix: Change php version to 7.4 in Cpanel under PHP Selector. I was using 7.2 php version before and reCAPTCHA was giving error.

Q2A version: 1.8.4

That’s strange, I can’t see why the PHP version would make a difference.

No idea, but it worked for me. Maybe the plugin code is incompatible with 7.2?

I've already find out that problem with reCAPTCHA appears ONLY if there's a code in site's files (for example in .htaccess file) that changes PHP version from native for our hosting to another.
