GitHub login not working?

On our forum,, we enabled the GitHub plugin, but login seems to fail with the following error: “Sorry, there was an error authorizing your account. Perhaps you did not approve authorization?”. I thought this was a configuration error on my GitHub account, but logging in here using the same account works. Any ideas?

Have you looked at the logs?

You have to check the GitHub settings for your org – we don’t have access to those credentials (nor would we want to). See the #howto on setting up GitHub login.


The URL contains message=redirect_uri_mismatch, which means you put the wrong URL in the GitHub configuration (this is set on Github itself).
