WebFaction
Community site: login faq

It is now not possible for users to login to my website using Facebook login.

This seems to be an issue on the Webfaction server having to do with (perhaps) DNS name resolution.

Note that

1) We have NOT changed any code or settings today. It just stopped working within the last couple of hours.

2) Facebook login works fine from our local server.

The error is:

"There is a temporary failure in name resolution"

This is the url:

url = "https://graph.facebook.com/oauth/access_token?client_id="+settings.FB_APP_ID+"&redirect_uri="+settings.DOMAIN+"/fb_login_final/"+"&client_secret="+settings.FB_SECRET+"&code="+code

And the Python call:

response = urllib2.urlopen(url)

This is being caused by a DNS problem that we are presently troubleshooting: Ongoing DNS issues

We'll update that post as soon as we have more information.
