I'm trying to deploy my application. I basically followed the cookbook in the rails book. But I have a problem. My incoming requests are https://foo.com/whatever I do a RewriteRule to pass it to a Proxy with two mongrel BalanceMembers as http://127.0.0.1:8000 and 8001. All that is working fine except when my rails code executes a redirect_to there(id) function. That puts me back to an http request. I have my Apache server set up so that you can not get to these pages using http so the server gives me back a page not found or permission denied or something like that. I think I understand why this is happening. As far as mongrel and rails thinks, this is an http request. Can I get mongrel to pass the request to rails as if it was https? Thank you for your help, Perry

Try adding these two lines to your apache configuration: RequestHeader set X_FORWARDED_PROTO "https" RequestHeader set X_ORIGINAL_PROTOCOL "https" If you're using VirtualHost blocks, these lines go in that block. > Thank you for your help, > Perry -- Rick email@example.com
