mongrel and ssl

Hi,

I currently have an app running using Mongrel, and need to add SSL to
certain functions. I found this link (http://www.styledbits.com/
articles/2006/06/04/adding-ssl-to-your-rails-app-in-5-minutes) hunting
through the archives, and was wondering if this is actually all that
would be required (aside from getting a server certificate)?

Has anybody used this successfully, or have any other suggestions for
how to accomplish it?

Thanks,

Simon

that link seems to be down so not sure what that is all about but here
is the tutorial I used to originally setup the whole shebang, ssl and
all:

assuming your running apache too...

For the nginx crowd:

http://rubyjudo.com/2006/11/2/nginx-ssl-rails

and

Cheers,

You should also note that the ssl_requirement plugin from 37signals wraps up the code in that styelbits blog post nicely (not that there is a lot).

It’s repository be found here:

http://dev.rubyonrails.org/svn/rails/plugins/ssl_requirement/

Cheers,

Using that repository, what else needs to be done to get SSL up and
running using mongrel? Obtain a certificate, and then anything else?
Can Mongrel do this without having Apache running in front of it?

Thanks again,

Simon
