Facebook Login - How to configure the URL


Since I’ve launched my App to production I’m having problems with Facebook. I use accounts-facebook to let my users register using their facebook accounts. When running in localhost everything was working fine, I had everything configured like in this tutorial: http://bulenttastan.net/login-with-facebook-using-meteor-js/

The error I’m getting is the following:

Given URL is not allowed by the Application configuration: One or more of the given URLs is not allowed by the App's settings. It must match the Website URL or Canvas URL, or the domain must be a subdomain of one of the App's domains.

My app is running in www.myapp.com:5431, so I’ve configured facebook with this URL but it doesn’t work.

I think the absolute URL is well configured in the server. This is what I get using the absoluteUrl() in the client:


This is the configuration inside facebook:

I am also curious about this. I have the same problem. My app is deployed @ Digital Ocean.

Have you guys also registered Android/iOS apps on Facebook?

No one has deal with this? :S

Sorry for insisting, but… Have you figured out how to make this work?

We finally made this work. The problem was related with the port, the App was running under http://myapp.com:5431 and Fb was giving the errors above so we decided to migrate the app to a subdomain in the port 80 http://app.myapp.com

Hope this helps :slight_smile:


Thanks for sharing @puliuk

So if it’s forced to work on port 80, how one can develop in a localhost:3000?

That I don’t understand… Because following this tutorial http://bulenttastan.net/login-with-facebook-using-meteor-js/ it worked perfectly in localhost:3000 but when using a different domain it looks like it is forcer to the port 80.

In any case I don’t think this is a Meteor issue but a Facebook one, but I can’t confirm this.
