Installing/updating ca-certificate [SOLVED]

Post#1 by igreka » 18 Nov 2014, 02:24

Hi,

I am developing a rails app and need to do a ssl call to a remote api. Sadly I use the Faraday rest client which relies on openssl to authenticate. My issue is that the ca_path for openssl is /etc/ssl/certs/ and it is as dry as a Sahara well.

Can anyone show me how to update that folder and add the proper .cert bundle to it?

Thanks

What desktop are you using?

After grabbing the package mentioned above you want to manually update it from a terminal: update-ca-certificates

Sorry for the delay on answering to this but, as always, this is more than useful.

I install the ca-certificate bundle and use the update command as suggested by Brokerman.

BTW, I am using RazorQt as desktop.

Thanks again.
