Hello there
Can anyone advise on how to create a self-signed certificate for use on localhost which will then proxy requests to an https endpoint on real host?
Could anyone share the openssl steps required to get it working with pushpin / mongrel2 ?

hi @jon1010hill_twitter , generating the cert data should be the same as other webservers such as apache. then getting it to work with mongrel2 should just be a matter of putting the data in the right files
mongrel2 expects a .crt file containing the cert (& chain if applicable, but in the case of self-signed probably there is no chain), and a .key file containing the key
