Problems with Google/OpenID Sign-in
Facebook andTwitter sign-ins work perfectly for me! I cannot, however, figure out why the Google and OpenID sign-ins will not work. This is the error I get when trying to login with both of them:
You don't have permission to access /vanilla/entry/openid on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
I scoured the forum for someone with the same problem, but did not find anyone. There was a similar problem mentioned here: http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/comment/163432/#Comment_163432
What I have in common with those people, is that I too am using HostGator.
When I contacted HostGator, I talked with the amazing and super helpful Jeremy W (I wish all help agents were as great and invested as he was). He went through everything on their end with a fine-toothed comb (requirements, permissions etc.) and came to the conclusion that it is most likely a problem with Vanilla's script. Hopefully we can get this solved soon!
If this is not actually a Vanilla issue and someone can help me and tell me what the problem actually is, I will absolutely contact HostGator so they can have information about the problem, for anyone else who needs help with this too.
I really wanted to be able to offer the Google sign-in feature on my forums, so I'm very disappointed I will have to disable it until there is a solution.
Can anyone help or shed light on this issue?
