  5. I am getting the error “Unable to authorize the facebook application. Please check your curl/fopen and firewall settings”

I am getting the error “Unable to authorize the facebook application. Please check your curl/fopen and firewall settings”

There are 3 reason for this issue.
  1. The curl/fopen is not enabled in the server
  2. The firewall is restricting the connection to facebook.
  3. The entered fb app details are not correct. (Please reset your app secret password and try again)
Please contact your hosting team to check the first 2 points (curl/fopen and firewall).
For the third issue, please make sure that your have created the app using the instructions in How can I create Facebook application?
