I’m working on an eCommerce app built on rails. It will be relatively
small at first and I’m not expected too much traffic. I’m considering
either Pound+Mongrel or Apache+Mongrel. My question is this: I want
several pages in the app to be standard http (home page, about us page,
etc) but I want the credit card transaction piece to be secure using
https and SSL. Can I do this within the same rails application?
Up to this point, I’ve seen that you can create a virtual host on either
Apache or Pound that points requests on 443 to your application, however
I only want specific views to be secured.
I’m quite new at this rails deployment stuff so please feel free to give
me advice on setup, hosting, etc.
