WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Once again I can't log in to community.webfaction.com

I requested a reset link and added Google as authentication provider. Login via Google results in "You don't have permission to access / on this server." If this authentication method is broken, please remove it as option.

When I re-use the temporary link, I get a "404 Not Found" page. However, I am also logged in, and can navigate to my profile page from my linked name in the header.

The previous time this happened, it was because I was confused about what login name to use. My email address doesn't work. The name that appears in my profile page link (https://community.webfaction.com/users/108/jean-jordaan) doesn't work. My "Real Name" doesn't work. I don't see anywhere on my profile page where to see or change my login/username. The temporary access link doesn't give any clue as to the username in use.

Please give the community login process some love, so that it matches Webfaction's normal level of excellence.
