SSL w/ mongrel and Apache 2

Hello,

I'm working on a Rails app that needs to open an SSL connection to
another server. We use mongrel+Apache 2, and the SSL Requirement plugin
(installed via script/plugin install).

I have a method in a controller "marked" as SSL only, so the request
gets redirected to https://xxx.xx.com/controller/method

But I can't get Apache to launch ruby and run the request through my
rails app. I'm sure the solution is easy.

Thanks in advance for anyone's help.
