Amazon S3 & Facebook Fanpage app


Hits: 10270  

I want to link Amazon S3 https object like “https://s3.amazonaws.com/bucket/index.html” to facebook iframed fan page…
But it returned error….

405 Method Not Allowed
Code: MethodNotAllowed

Method: POST

After few searches I got link…. but not helpful 🙁

Finally, I got good article on AWS Forum..

I came to know that facebook loads the requested HTTPS S3 URL “https://s3.amazonaws.com/bucket/index.html” by sending a form POST and injected some content into the iframe, but S3 have POST for file uploading only… so it returned “MethodNotAllowed”

Bucket Policies won’t work in this condition… 🙁

Now, I have few options to use S3 HTTPS Object “https://s3.amazonaws.com/bucket/index.html” in facebook iframed fan page…

1. Run a HTTPS Apache server that can load S3 HTTPS Object with POST method and supply to fan page 🙂
2. Load S3 HTTPS Object using another iframe on any server… see code below

  • Thanks for this post! I’ve been scratching my head frantically trying to figure out the problem…

    As for the workaround, are you saying I can use either option 1 or 2, or do you mean I need to use both?

    I’ve tried doing just the iframe with the sub-page as https, but it hasn’t worked for me. I’ve tried using the main page containing the iframe as an https (obviously that doesn’t work because that gets me the original error message), and also using a regular http page, which loads blank when my facebook account is https-activated.

    Am I missing something?

  • Yes, Please Check you have valid SSL on your domain 🙂

  • I wanted to use AWS for the SSL, are you saying we need to host the landing page on our own SSL enabled domain name? Can’t you run a web server from AWS which supports POST requests instead of relying on two servers/endpoints?
