In most cases you can install automatically from WordPress.
However, if you install this manually, follow these steps:

CAPTCHA does not work; the image does not show up.
Really Simple CAPTCHA needs GD and FreeType library installed on your server. Ask your server administrator if they are installed.
Also, make the temporary file folder writable. The location of the temporary file folder is managed by the instance variable
tmp_dir of ReallySimpleCaptcha class. Note that the setting varies depending on the calling plugin. For example, Contact Form 7 uses
wp-contents/uploads/wpcf7_captcha as the temporary folder basically, but it can use different folder depending on your settings.
