Being Your Own OpenID Provider

6 05 2008

I tried twice today to set up a this domain as my OpenID, delegating first to Yahoo! then to my GMail account (using http://openid-provider.appspot.com/ which is almost there but not quite yet). Ended up setting up my own OpenID provider using phpMyID, which might be a bit rough at the edges but works as advertised.

I was only briefly stumped because for some reason, hashing my password using openssl did not give the same result as hashing it via PHP. Turns out I had forgotten to use ‘-n’ with ‘echo’ D’oh!

Somehow I was hoping this OpenID stuff would have been a bit easier…
