Signup error: Sorry, there was an error authorizing your account. Perhaps you did not approve authorization?


#1

Noticing the above message in a couple places - wondering if this has hit anyone else:

  1. When I tried to sign up with Github - took a look at https://meta.discourse.org/t/how-to-solve-this-error-sorry-there-was-an-error-authorizing-your-account-perhaps-you-did-not-approve-authorization/32599 and didn’t get much - I don’t see any sort of permission in my Github account

  2. When I clicked the activate link in my email, I got the same message.

Did you use the old nixos.trydiscourse.org during the signup? The GitHub oauth only has a single redirect URL and it might be causing issues in that case.

That’s probably it - I was indeed trying to use trydiscourse.org.
