Using SSL with HTTP Basic Authentication in Rails 2.0

Hello all,

I’m using WEBrick to serve up my Rails 2.0 application, and it works
just
fine when I use HTTP Basic Authentication. However, I’m wondering if
it’s
possible to tell WEBrick (or Mongrel, or Lighty) to use SSL when my
Rails
application calls upon the HTTP Basic Authentication. Has anyone done
this?

Thanks! – BTR

It might be easier to have Rails specify SSL at the appropriate time
so all the configuration is in one place. You’ll probably receive
more detail on the Rails mailing list:

http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-talk

Sorry not to be of more help!

Regards,
Andy S.

You realize that Ruby On Rails has a separate mailing list? If yes,
please post your rails related questions there.
By saying this, I am not drawing a hard line, but its generally a
pretty good idea.

Thanks Andrew for responding. My fault on not using the Rails mailing
list. I’ll do so right now. – BTR
