This error means that script can't connect to facebook by some reason:
- facebook don't response
- you have url_fopen disabled

Addenster I think u r wright because some members able to connect by facebook connect but most of time it is not working.
my host provider replied me that n regards to url_fopen, that is currently enabled on your server. Also, are u connecting over a non-standard port to the facebook servers?

I hosted my site on sheared hosing server thats why i have only access to cpanel I changed host name localhost to globhost in config.php but started reinstalling site.I think this is because MySQL Database is on local host please tell me how can i change host name and in which file i change then Facebook connect plugin run proparly

Hello! I'm receiving the following error when I try to use Facebook Connect on my Oxwall site (looks like a problem with REST). Any advice is appreciated.:

Great! Thanks for letting us know.

I am also getting this message "Seems there are some problems with connection to Facebook. Please, try again later."

Why is this plugin broken?

What is the fix?

I do not want to change web hosts because of one poorly coded plugin.

What is your software version? What is the version of FBConnect plugin?
Alex Feb 24 '15
Oxwall 1.7.2

FB connect does not identify it's version number.

They are both recently downloaded and recently installed.

Assume the newest version.

FB connect started working now, for no reason at all.

I did nothing to change it.

This makes me scared of the code because I did nothing, nothing at all, and now the error is gone?

Alex, as we use FB SDK, seems like there was something wrong on their side.

please check this link, it has nothing to do with the software, something is wrong with the network or server settings.
