Post subject:  Test Facebook App from Localhost

Hi Everybody,

Can I use localhost to test the Facebook App. I have already tried with the following, but it comes up with no result.

1) I have tried with changing the windows host file which is under(path : c:/windows/system32/drivers/etc/), and then changing the httpd-vhosts.conf which you will find(path : xampp/apache/conf/extra/).

I have changed my localhost to local.sitename i.e http://local.sitename/ using the above.

2) Secondly, I tried use the following code

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, FALSE);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 2);

to stop the SSL verification.

3) Thirdly, I tried to put http://localhost:9000/ as call back url in Facebook App.


But i am getting the same error,
SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed

Can anyone please help, I think localhost is the problem for testing facebook app, and note that i am working in cloud environment. Please suggest me, can i use LOCALHOST for testing Facebook App.

Thanks in advance.

The quickest way I can think of to start debugging this is to move your code to an online server (there a plenty of free webhosts to choose from) and point the callback url to that location, and see if it works properly. If it does or does not, you'll know if you should be looking at your machine or the code.

Alternately, you could forward port 80 to that machine and use your public IP address.
