Application error registering application

Where do I register my application and get the consumer key and secret in OSM? I had tried with this url But it displayed as Application Error. Anything problem on this site? or Did I do the wrong way?

You know that URL is the test server right? It's a good idea to test on there, and It should work on there, however there's been some brokeness on this server just recently. In fact I just hopped on IRC to ask about it for you and I think maybe it's fixed.
You should now be able to create an account on there -> sign in -> click your name to go to your user page -> click 'ouath settings' -> click 'Register your application'. That gets you to a form to fill in at a URL like
In fact all of the user page features were returning 500 Application Errors before.

Secure OAuth

Why does not provide HTTPS for Request Token URL and Access Token URL? Wouldn't be the server-side communication much safer (in terms of interceptability) using HTTPS?

The https URLs are now the recommended ones. Retiring the http ones would break oauth for now. -- Stereo (talk) 16:15, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
