    This has been available for quite a while but the documentation has not been easily available.

    This is not for the timid and is only aimed at those who administer their own OpenLabyrinth site.

    Prompted by a question from Yusuf, I have been exploring again how to set up OAuth authentication on your OLab server.

    I am pleased to say that the process still works just fine for Facebook and Twitter logins, with only tiny changes in the steps needed, which are self-evident.

    It is not so easy for Google+ logins. There are more steps needed now, and I seem to have run into a wee loop of steps where I can go no further. Happy to discuss this further with other groups who are trying to do this.


    I have some further suggestions from Yusuf, for which I am very grateful, where he figured out some problems that lay in his .htaccess file. I am reposting his note here because others may run into this:

    I have done some debugging on home.php on line 60

    public function action_loginOAuthCallback()

    With the issue #104 I have confirmed it is a htacess issue. So I have changed my htacess file as

    Options +FollowSymLinks
    Turn on URL rewriting
    RewriteEngine On
    Protect hidden files from being viewed
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny From All
    # Redirect Trailing Slashes...
    RewriteRule ^(.*)/$ /$1 [L,R=301]
    Allow any files or directories that exist to be displayed directly
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^ index.php [L]

    With this htacess, I was able to login with Twitter, Facebook and Google+ So I suggest to change htacess file as this.
