Same here with WP 2.6.5

Is this an incompatibility with that Wordpress version?

I am hoping it is something minor as I really wanna use it rather then MyOpenID.

I have looked over the code and can't see what is wrong. I have installed PEAR
thinking it might be that but sadly, that didn't work either.

Also, just to see if anything happened, this is also the same when I tried it on
WordPress 2.7 RC1.

I'm experiencing the same issue using Wordpress 2.7 and the OpenID plugin 
version 3.1.4.
Even tried to reinstall the plugin, didn't help though.

@Brentozar.com: You're of course going to see the error message if you just hit 
the OpenID server directly... 
that's expected.  Maybe not the best behavior, but still expected.  

Have you all tried multiple times, and continued to get this message?  have you 
tried logging in to different 
relying parties?  Have you tried resetting the cache from the OpenID options 
page?  I have occasionally gotten 
this error myself from time to time, but trying to login again always fixes it.

I've tried multiple times.  I've been having the issue even in WP2.6, just 
hoped it'd
go away in 2.7 but no luck.  Tried resetting the cache from the OpenID options 
page,
and tried logging in from different OpenID test sites plus StackOverflow.com.

I have tried logging in many times and still, it did not work. I have deleted 
the
cache and it didn't work either.

I have tried logging into many different sites and still, the same error.

If you need anything tested, do let me know.

I am also having the same issue as Brent. I'd love to get this fixed. 
Ironically, I'm 
also trying to use stackoverflow.com. It was working fine when I was using 
blogger 
to host my blog. hopefully I can get a WordPress solution working soon.

I think I'm beginning to narrow down where the problem is.  Could one of you 
that are having this issue add the 
following just after line 280 (as the first line of the function 
openid_server_process_response():

error_log('processing response - ' . var_export($response, true));

Then let me know what gets logged for that.  If you've got a few minutes today 
to try and fix this, email or IM me 
directly (http://willnorris.com/).

What file are you talking about?  I've searched through about a dozen files and 
I
can't find the string openid_server_process_response in any of them, but I'm 
waving
the white flag here.  (I already stopped using the plugin, was just going to do 
you a
favor.)

would someone who has been having this problem please try the latest code out 
of trunk and see if that fixes it?  
It may not work on Windows servers using IIS.  I haven't been able to test it 
there, and I have a feeling it may 
have problems.

I've tried to manage this error myself, but this ended, when more of them 
appeared 
because of my changes. But still i think i was close. First of all the request 
looks 
like

?openid_server=1?openid.return_to=http%3A%2F
%2Fwww.kinopoisk.ru&openid.mode=checkid_setup&openid.identity=http%3A%2F
%2Fwww.charnad.com%2F&openid.trust_root=http%3A%2F
%2Fwww.kinopoisk.ru&openid.sreg.required=email,fullname,dob,gender,country&openi
d.sreg.optional=email,fullname,dob,gender,country

There's the second '?' after openid_server=1. 

When i change it to '&' - nothing happens. I just got my blog on the screen. No 
redirects or smth.

have you tried this with the latest release (v3.2)?  If not, try that... as 
long as you're using some kind of permalink 
structure other than "default", you shouldn't see that any more.  Instead, the 
URL should be 
    /openid/server?openid.return_to... (etc)

Oh, i forgot to reactivate xrds plugin. Ok, now i got 'This is an OpenID 
Server.' 
message at http://my/blog/openid/server

i still don't get how do i make permalink for this, but i manually added
  <link rel="openid.server" href="http://www.charnad.com/blog/openid/server" />
  <link rel="openid.delegate" href="http://www.charnad.com/" />
to my wp theme. 

No i can comment using openid again. Thank you!

hmm... you shouldn't actually need to add those to your front page manually... 
it should do it automatically.  
someone else seems to be having the same problem 
(http://code.google.com/p/diso/issues/detail?id=111) ... 
I'd love to figure out what is causing this if possible.

Hello and thanks for the awesome plugin.

I had the above mentioned problems as well, but after a little investigation I 
found 
out that one of my plugins called "mobilepress" was the one responsible for 
this 
behaviour.

After disabling it, OpenID works like a charm.

I hope it helps
Cheers

I think the plugin is a red-herring:

I turned off all plugins (except XRDS and OpenId, of course) and changed my 
theme to
the default and I still get this from

Will Norris et al:

I figured out what's going on.  It only took a many hours. ^_^  BTW: Will, I
recommend using wireshark to get the HTTP request to replay the RP request over 
and
over to debug this stuff.

The RP (Relaying Party) is making a request of the OP (OpenID
Provider) to the URL http://example.com/openid/server and is sending
some POST data.

However, apache sees that there is no /path/to/wordpress/openid/server
and triggers the rewrite rule for Wordpress' index.php.

Wordpress then looks up the URL and says, "Hey, I don't have it." and
sets the page up to be a 404.

I don't understand what Wordpress is doing, but it makes $_SERVER look
*wrong* for Auth/OpenID.php's getQuery (the HACK FIXME part).

getQuery() returns: Array
(
    [error] => 404
)


Example $_SERVER:
SERVER: Array
(
    [REDIRECT_SCRIPT_URL] => /openid/server
    [REDIRECT_SCRIPT_URI] => http://docwhat.gerf.org/openid/server
    [REDIRECT_REQUEST_METHOD] => POST
    [REDIRECT_STATUS] => 404
    [SCRIPT_URL] => /openid/server
    [SCRIPT_URI] => http://docwhat.gerf.org/openid/server
....


I think the problem is that the plugin is hooking into the "determine
where the page is" stack at the wrong place.  The newer wordpresses
have been making this worse as they improve the redirection stack.


THE WORKAROUND:
  cd to the top of your wordpress installation and do this:
  mkdir -p openid/server

That works because the 404 handler isn't invoked by wordpress and
therefore the POST data isn't lost.

Ciao!

diazluis: What http code is "forbidden"?  Is it being handled by apache or by 
wordpress.

I think one of the real problems is that something can go wrong deep in this
transaction and it's very hard to troubleshoot.  Maybe if it logged these to the
database, storing only the last 50 or so?

Ciao!

diazluis:  Sorry. I was talking in general at the end, for Will's benefit, not 
to
you.  I didn't make that clear and I should have.

That sounds like a different configuration problem, not the problem mentioned 
in this
bug.  This problem is pretty specific; openid is trying to respond, but it 
looses
some info and can't.  The symptoms are the "needsSigning()" message or (for 
trunk)
the message about "invalid mode".

I'd try the general support or open a new bug.

Ciao!

actually what diazluis is reporting is exactly what I would expect to happen if 
you were to create an "openid/server" directory.  Your 
webserver would see that first, serve it up, and the request would never make 
it to WordPress.  docwhat: I have no idea how this is actually 
working on your machine.

Two requests from anybody/everybody:
1) I made some changes for a 3.2.2 release some time ago relating specifically 
to request parameters getting screwed up.  I've yet to 
release it, so I'd like to have people try the latest code in subversion to see 
if these changes make a difference: 
http://diso.googlecode.com/svn/wordpress/openid/trunk/

2) because I can't reproduce the problem, and it's proving to be a 
not-so-isolated problem, I'd like to see if anyone having this problem 
would be willing to let me poke around on your server (via SSH, not just a WP 
account).  Of course you have to understand the implications 
of giving me this kind of access -- you'll have to trust me when I say I will 
only poke at OpenID stuff.  But if someone has a test 
environment or something I could look at, I think that may be the only way to 
definitively figure out what is going on here.  If you've got 
something like this, please contact me directly (willnorris.com)

It makes it to wordpress because I have directory indexes turned off.  If I 
didn't,
then it wouldn't make it to wordpress.

Either way, this isn't the correct fix.  :-(

So it looks like my problem was due to my apache configuration.

When I commented out my ErrorDocument handlers, I got 404 errors; my rewrite 
rules
were messed up somehow.

I'm still not entirely sure how they got messed up, but once I fixed them then
everything started working correctly, which was very nice.

If you have ErrorDocument handlers, try commenting them out and seeing what 
happens
with your pretty permalinks.

Ciao!

Disable Mobilepress or any other redirecting plugin and that should resolve the 
issue. 

The Mobilepress plugin was the conflict in my situation and by disabling it and 
then
refreshing the cache on the Open ID plug in, it fixed the issue. 

Good Day!

Just to add my two-pence worth...

I has the error described, and it turned out to be because I already had a 
directory
called "openid" on my site, containing some files from phpMyID. I removed that
directory and everything sprung into life.

Woo hoo!

Odd, I just tracked this problem down to my own hand-crafted plugin for a quick 
& dirty gallery-from-Flickr 
page I'd hacked together. Removed my plugin (which I wasn't using any more) and 
the problem went away. No 
idea what the heck in my plugin was causing the problem, though.

My plugin included phpFlickr stuff and used a PEAR database connection (rather 
than using WordPress's 
existing DB connection; like I said, quick & dirty) but I can't see why it 
would've interfered with OpenID...

I've attached the plugin, with my Flickr API redacted, so it won't actually 
work unless you provide your own. 
Maybe it'll give you a clue as to what's going on, and what plugin behaviours 
are causing problems.

I can reliably reproduce and correct this issue.  In my case, it the conflicting
plugin was <a
href="http://blog.fili.nl/articles/wordpress-plugin-anti-captcha/">Anti-Captcha<
/a>.
 At the very top of the plugin not contained in any function was the following:

if(!isset($_SESSION)) {
    session_start();
}

I solved the problem by commenting out the lines above and adding 
"@session_start()"
to the anti_captcha_verify_token() function that that actually reads from the
session.  I'm not sure why this fixes the issue.  Perhaps something unusual with
sessions is happening.  Would we get this error message if the openid plugin 
couldn't
find what should have been previously stored in the session?  Hopefully this is
another clue as to what's going on.

- Wordpress 2.8.4
- OpenID 3.3.1
- Anti-Captcha 20090821

Also getting this issue (WP 2.8.4/OpenID 3.3.1), which for me seems to also be 
related to MobilePress (which has a similar "loose" session_start() call as 
described for Anti-Captcha).

I'm not sure about the root cause, however a realiable workaround has been 
adding 
sites into the "Your Trusted Sites" page (wp-admin/users.php?
page=openid_trusted_sites) manually BEFORE attempting to login.

Might help someone until a fix can be worked out.

I started having this same issue after installing a WP plugin called "FAQ 
builder". I
searched through the FAQ builder plugin's files and found the config file also 
began
with a session_start() call (as in comments 54 and 55 above).  After commenting 
out
that line, the problem went away.

I've been having this issue ever since installing the plugin, as it wasn't the 
first
one I installed. However, I now have far too many other complex plugins that 
rely on
session_start(); and cannot comment the function out of all of them. Is there a 
way
that OpenID can be rewritten to not have this conflict?

Also, external sites now claim there is no OpenID server detected at my address.
(It's not just adding new sites any more; now I can't log in to previously
authenticated sites.) Is that related to this problem or should I try to find 
the
cause and open a new ticket?

A huge bug that's been around for nearly two years. Too bad any plugin using 
session_start() triggers it.

The problem is NOT with the OpenID plug-in, it's with other plug-ins which 
start a session in irregular places.  It's a bad programming practice to start 
the session outside of a function where it will be invoked on every page load 
irrespective of whether or not the actual plug-in code is triggered.  Plus, as 
we have seen, plug-ins which behave like that don't play well with other 
plug-ins that are also dependent upon the session.  From a programming 
standpoint, the "bug" is in the ill-behaved plug-in and not in the OpenID 
plug-in.  There isn't any way to code around it; the issue must be fixed at the 
source.
