Problem opening https OpenSSL problem

I’m having trouble using the open(url) method.

This used to work fine, but I’ve recently updated gems, and it seems to
have broken. Also, I’ve switched to running on ree-1.8.7 to try and
mimic my heroku stack. Not sure if that might have something to do with
it as well

at the top of my class I require:

require ‘date’
require ‘nokogiri’
require ‘open-uri’

The code that is breaking it is:

puts"trying to open doc"
doc = open(encoded_url, “UserAgent” => “Ruby-OpenURI”).read
puts"just opened doc"
return parsed_doc = Nokogiri::XML(doc)

the log out put is :,-0.131836&radius=50000&types=bar|night_club|stadium|movie_theater&name=Hotel%20Suite%20Inn%20Pennsylvania&sensor=false&key=xxxxx(real
key here)
trying to open doc
[Worker(host:Michael-Bs-MacBook-Pro.local pid:41513)]
Admin::Events::ScraperManager failed with OpenSSL::SSL::SSLError:
SSL_connect returned=1 errno=0 state=SSLv3 read server certificate B:
certificate verify failed - 1 failed attempts


As you can see, it never gets to the line “just opened doc”, so it is
failing on

doc = open(encoded_url, “UserAgent” => “Ruby-OpenURI”).read

Having googled around, I found a fix for OpenSSL, which involved
creating certificates, and setting them like this

https.ca_file = ‘/opt/local/share/curl/curl-ca-bundle.crt’

but I don’t have an https object, so how can I set these certificates!

Any help appreciated

require ‘net/http’

def http_connection

@http_connection = Net::HTTP.start(host, port), params)
@http_connection = nil


I hope it is work

Try this way
