Been banging my head against this and need to bounce thoughts against someone else. I keep getting locally:
OpenSSL::SSL::SSLError: SSL_connect returned=1 errno=0 state=error: certificate verify failed
I get on heroku:
openssl::ssl::sslerror: ssl_connect returned=1 errno=0 state=sslv3 read server certificate b: certificate verify failed
My discourse instance has a SSL certificate from DNSimple, so that is all working perfectly. On heroku, since I just have a rails API, I opted not to get an SSL cert for that since heroku already provides you with one, and just use the URL from your heroku instance.
Now, I am able to use a Advanced Rest Client (Chrome extension) and make requests to my discourse instance no problem. Here is some code that I am using with the discourse_api gem.
discourse_client = DiscourseApi::Client.new('https://community.desta.co') discourse_client.api_key = ENV['COMMUNITY_API_KEY'] # path to heroku cert, which I verified exists through `heroku run bash` discourse_client.ssl(ca_file: '/usr/lib/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt') discourse_client.api_username = 'system'
Maybe I’m misunderstanding certificates? Please help! Thanks
