http://www.yahoo.com/ returns 404 depending on headers, inhibiting OpenID discovery

Not sure the best place to post bugs... but since this is Open ID related:
It seems some Yahoo! load balancers are returning 404 responses when "application/xrds+xml" is part of the "Accept" header. That is preventing OpenID libraries, such as python-openid from successful autodiscovery

  • Any ideas on this one? We are seeing the same issue in production too.

  • We would suggest you do the discovery on "https://me.yahoo.com/" instead if possible. Almost all Yahoo! users' OpenID URL areunder "https://me.yahoo.com/".Thanks,Yu WangYahoo! Membership team

  • Hi Im getting 'No servers found' when I try to autenticate with yahoo.

    Here's a part of my code;

    if (isset($googlelogin) or isset($yahoologin) ){
     $error=true;
     try { 
      $openid = new LightOpenID;
      if(!$openid->mode) {
       if(isset($googlelogin)) {
    $openid->identity = 'https://www.google.com/accounts/o8/id';
    }
       elseif(isset($yahoologin)){
    $openid->identity = 'https://yahoo.com';
    }

    $openid->required = array('namePerson/first', 'namePerson/last','contact/email');
    header('Location: ' . $openid->authUrl());
      
     /*?>
     <a href="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] . "?login"?>">Login with Google</a>
     <?php*/
      } elseif($openid->mode == 'cancel') {
       echo 'User has canceled authentication!';
      } else {
       if($openid->validate())
       {
    $error=false;  
    echo 'User <b>' . $openid->identity . '</b> has logged in.<br>';

    echo "<h3>User information</h3>";

    So I wonder where the error is, it works with google
