That’s not Rails specific. You need to setup your Apache server to use
SSL.
I’m not an Apache expert, but I think you have to:

  • Enable mod_ssl
  • Setup the port SSL will listen to (The default might be commented on
    your conf file)
  • Define your virtualhost for that port.

If your server already has SSL configured, you only need to define your
vhost.

Hope it helps.

Thanks pal. Using a single apache with multiple virtual host im able
to achieve https and run my run application .

<VirtualHost *:8080>

ServerName somename.com

Options FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} !^443$
RewriteRule ^.*$ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R]

<VirtualHost *:443>
RailsEnv development

Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order deny,allow

Deny from none

  Allow from all
ProxyPreserveHost on

CustomLog “/usr/local/apache2/logs/ssl_request_log”
“%t %h %{SSL_PROTOCOL}x %{SSL_CIPHER}x “%r” %b”

Through single server setup im able to achieve this (placing app and
db in the server ) works fine. Can u suggest me . How can i achieve
this in a three tier architecture . (Web component simple apache , App
server containing passenger module with apache pointing the
application , db server in a seperate machine ) . Between web,db and
app im able to esatblish connection. But with respect to https . When
i call from webserver to app internally the URL shifts back to http
from https so url breaks up in this case. Any ruby plugin / gum which
will support https (SSL) to stay .

Thanks pal … Using multiple virtual hosts in a single apache im to
configure the apache in https make my application to run in https.
